Applicants should be aware that this is a grant program, and that each application is considered on its merits within the criteria of the program. While we attempt to provide assistance to as many applicants as we can, the filing of an application is not, nor should it be perceived as, a guarantee of funding.
Who is eligible?
To be eligible for this program, an artist must:
- Be able to demonstrate a minimum involvement of ten years in a mature phase of his or her work.
- Work in the disciplines of painting, sculpture or printmaking.
The program does NOT consider requests for:
- Dental work
- Chronic situations
- Capital improvements
- Projects of any kind
- Situations resulting from general indebtedness or lack of employment
Each application will be reviewed by the Directors, who will exercise their discretion in considering it, and will determine the amount of each award. Applicants should note there is a set amount appropriated for these grants each fiscal year; once this budgetary limit has been reached, the Foundation will not be able to judge any additional requests on their merits.
Second-party requests are honored only when the applicant is physically unable to communicate with the Foundation. Review procedures for completed applications begin as soon as they are received. Full review generally takes about four weeks from the time an application is complete. Situations with imminent deadlines will receive priority.
