The National Arts Council in Singapore has introduced a new funding scheme for schools to carry out arts development projects by changing its awards framework to encourage greater student participation and engagement. Gone are the old categories of gold, silver and bronze and in their place in ascending order are Spark, Glow and Blaze that describe the efforts schools make to develop an arts culture that is shared with their constituent communities.

The scheme is open to recipients of the National Arts Education Awards, with each project receiving up to S$20,000 over two years.
