Fairfield University - 2005

Funded in March, 2005: $65000 for 2 years
The Dana Foundation grant enabled Fairfield University's music education program to conduct "Music for an Urban District: Curricular Innovation," an ongoing initiative to improve music education in the Bridgeport, CT Public Schools, a challenged urban public school district. Using Dana funds, Fairfield supplied Bridgeport's music teachers with the training, supplies, and instruments necessary to create and deliver an innovative, standards-based multicultural music curriculum tailored to the needs and interests of urban students.
