Artist Grant provides a $500 USD grant to one visual artist each grant cycle. Once an artist wins a grant, they may not apply again. We also award 2nd and 3rd place runners-up with $100 USD each. Runners-up may apply again in a future grant cycle.
There are four grant cycles per year – January 15, April 15, July 15, and October 15. The deadline for the current grant cycle is April 15, 2021. If you are interested in receiving deadline reminder notifications, please subscribe to our mailing list.
We aim to select the strongest work possible. Markers for what constitutes “strong” include:
A cohesive body of work
Well-presented work (with an understanding that artists have varying financial means and resources for presenting their work)
Work that communicates its viewpoint, ideas, and concepts clearly, effectively, and creatively
Work that is not derivative
