Professional Development Grant applications can be submitted at any time prior to the start of the training activity.
The SOA’s annual budget for Professional Development Grants is replenished in January each year. Applications are considered on a first-come-first-served basis. Funding is available during the calendar year until such time as the total approved by the Board for professional development activity exhausts the annual budget for this purpose. At that point notification is posted to the SOA’s website advising that funds for Professional Development Grants have been depleted until the start of the next calendar year.
Purpose: to support individuals participating in training activity that is consistent with the objectives of the SOA.
Eligible Activities: Projects designed to improve a person’s ability as a teacher of music and which have the potential to enhance the applicant’s musical development. For example, a workshop or university class would be a supportable activity, while attendance at a concert would not.
