Young Creatives Grant

The Young Creatives Grant was established to support and increase access to arts education for underserved youth ages 5-17. Funded by the Arts Council of Greater Lansing through its Arts Advancement Endowment Fund and the Michigan State University Federal Credit Union, this program provides grants of up to $1,500 to selected organizations to provide scholarships for children with financial need to attend classes and programs OR funds to support free arts/cultural programming with an educational focus targeting underserved youth.
