2015 LAA+ Application Process NOW OPEN!

2015 LAA+ Application Process Now Open!

"We are thrilled to grow the A+ Network in Louisiana," says Jacques Rodrigue, Executive Director of GRFA. "We believe LAA+, the first whole-school, arts-integrated reform initiative of its kind for our state, has the potential to influence the way that all Louisiana students are taught."

How To Apply

If your school is interested in applying to be part of LAA+ Schools, the statewide application process first requires schools to submit a Letter of Interest to the George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts. A link to this form, along with the 4 steps to the application process, can be found at www.aplusla.org.

Letters of interest are due January 23, 2015.

Please be aware that schools applying to LAA+ will be asked to provide a $75,000 payment that can be distributed over three years. Full and partial scholarships are available on a needs basis. Schools accepted into the LAA+ Schools make a commitment to a three-year implementation process. This includes customized professional development training for full faculty based on the school's needs, attendance at an annual LAA+ Summer Institute (including room and board), professional development for school leadership, and art supplies for the entire school. A sampling of schools may also be asked to participate in a 3-year quasi-experimental evaluation.

Deadline to Enter 2015 Art Contest is February 12!

George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts will award $45,000 in college scholarships to students whose artwork best represents Louisiana's Music! If you are a high school junior or senior in Louisiana, we invite you to submit an original work of art.

Thank you to the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Foundation for being our 2015 Art Contest partner!
