Applying for Artist Grants
What it is, who can apply, and basic guidelines
Complete your application and submit via e-mail to the Arts Council.
The Arts Council then issues each applicant an user id for their File Transfer Protocol (FTP) program. This is where each artist’s application is resubmitted, along with all support materials (pictures/examples of work, etc.).
All submitted entries are judged by a panel of artists art educators. Their selections are then reviewed by a separate panel of multi-county judges who are professional artists, art educators/administrators, and arts advocates.
The final recommendations from these panels must then be approved by the Board of Trustees of the Arts Council.
