The Charleston Marathon™ provides funding to award grants to teachers who design arts-based learning opportunities for their students. Grant awards average $2,000 and teachers in Charleston, Berkeley and Dorchester District 2 are eligible to receive funds. The grant applications go through a blind review process. However, bonus points are awarded to applicants who participate in the Marathon. These points can be earned in a variety of ways such as manning aid stations and providing student performance groups along the running route. For more information about bonus points and the application process, please view the following forms below.
