Support for Teachers: Created Equal Film Series

Arkansas Humanities Council logoThe Created Equal: America’s Civil Rights Struggle program hosted by the UALR Center for Arkansas History and Culture has been approved for K-12 teachers to receive professional development credit.

Teachers interested in attending these film screenings and panel discussions located outside of Little Rock and may need travel assistance are encouraged to apply for a Raising Education Achievement and Competence in the Humanities (REACH) grant through the Arkansas Humanities Council. REACH grant funds may be used for the following:

  • Teacher and librarian professional development
  •  Travel expenses for teachers and librarians attending conferences (lodging, meals, airfare, and mileage)

The deadline for REACH grant applications is first day of each month (except December). This is a postmarked date. Please mail the original signed application and six copies to:

Jama Best, Senior Program Officer
Arkansas Humanities Council
407 President Clinton Avenue, Suite 201
Little Rock, AR 72201

The above represents just some of the allowable expenses for the REACH grant. If uncertain as to whether or not a requested item is allowable, please contact Jama Best, Senior Program Officer at 501.320.5761 or

The REACH grant program is supported by a generous grant from the Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation.
