The FASE Grant Program is currently on hold. Please check back for updates after January 1, 2018.

The FASE Grant Program supports individuals and institutions providing outstanding string education opportunities for children and adults. Priority is given to proposals that are concerned with furthering the reach of The Bornoff Approach and classroom string teaching, hosting or attending teacher training workshops, advanced level study for young performers, and programs that benefit economically disadvantaged or underserved populations.

Grants from the Foundation for the Advancement of String Education may be used to support a variety of activities such as:

  • Institutional awards for program development
  • Teacher training
  • Individual student support
  • Institutional awards for one time projects such as guest artists, research projects, or capital expenditures
  • Institutional awards for projects such as camps, workshops, or festival development
  • Individual awards for professional development for educators, college study, private lessons or tuition
  • Awards for outreach activities such as school presentations or residencies

The FASE, Inc. grant awards will not support any programming that discriminates or discourages participation on the basis of race, gender, religion, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, or age in their enrollment or employment policies.
