Classroom Lecture

Applications close September 29th.

Through Morning Glow we are committed to providing up to $100,000 per year in grants to music and theater teachers. These grants are awarded biannually and may be used to supplement curriculum, purchase uniforms, provide construction materials, or anything else teachers in these departments see as a need to help their students. Funds may not be used for the teacher’s continuing education. We are currently partnering with Orange County Schools in Orlando, Florida to continue this program.

Morning Glow was previously partnered with Brevard Public Schools to reinstate the Summer Fine Arts Theatre Workshop, which has been fully funded through Summer 2024. Through this program, students in Brevard county had access to a free and inclusive theatre program. Busing is provided in an effort to make this program as accessible and successful as possible! Each year, we help to put on one show in the north end and south end of the county.
