MAPS (Media Arts in the Public Schools) receives $80K Greater Montana Foundation grant

The Greater Montana Foundation has granted $80,000 to the Irwin and Florence Rosten Foundation , known as MAPS Media Institute . MAPS originated as Media Arts in the Public Schools in 2004.

The money comes in two grants; one for ongoing operations funding and the other for a Media Mobil Lab program to share positive experiences with students across Montana in a rural outreach program.

The $20,000 grant supports the award-winning MAPS free after-school program serving four county schools, a summer session, work with the Salish-Kootenai College on the reservation, and an expansion to the Blackfeet Reservation.

“The Greater Montana Foundation is proud to continue our investment in MAPS Media Institute as it commits to build its programs for the benefit of our state’s youth, especially in rural and tribal communities,” Sidney Armstrong, executive director of GMF said. “We are especially gratified that its excellence is being recognized on a local, regional and national levels.”
