The 2020-21 Creative Schools Fund application is here! Ingenuity has worked closely with CPS to adapt this year’s grant structure to respond to the evolving needs of students, teachers and schools during this unprecedented school year.

  • Schools may apply for a CSF grant at any time between September 2020 and early February 2021.
  • Grants will be awarded on a rolling basis. The CSF team aims to respond to grants on a rapid timeline (within 6-8 weeks of submission).
  • Schools may apply once (if successful) or twice (if not successful the first time).
  • Schools are encouraged to apply early for programs that tie to intensive student instruction so they can demonstrate preparedness for changes in timeline.

2020-21 CSF Grant Guidelines

Applicants should read the updated CSF Grant Guidelines before applying to review critical adaptions, understand the latest CSF goals and priorities, check grant eligibility requirements, and note key dates.
