Americans for the Arts is pleased to again partner with VANS Custom Culture on the VANS Custom Culture Grant programThis program seeks to increase visibility for and resources available to arts educators and schools across the country, in order to sustain the arts as a vital part of education. The grant program is supported by funds from Vans Custom Culture—an art competition whose winning shoe design is produced and sold by Vans.

VANS Custom Culture Grants are available to public high schools (including charter schools) serving grades 9-12 that allow arts education to thrive in their school community. The grants encourage the inclusion of the arts as an integral component of an excellent education, and support activities that are consistent with local and national learning standards for arts education. Ten (10) schools across the country will each receive a $2,000 grant to support their work in providing high-quality music and/or visual arts instruction for students.
