The Stow Cultural Council is seeking proposals for community-oriented arts, humanities, and science programs. Funded by the state of Massachusetts, the town of Stow, and private foundations, the council awards grants to projects that contribute culturally to Stow and surrounding communities. Previous grants have supported concerts, school field trips, theater, dance, music, and film. Applications are due by Oct. 16 online at www.mass-culture.org/lcc_public.aspx.
