This grant is for artists of any age who are early in their career. The funds can be spent on anything that will support your growth: help in mounting an exhibition, workshops, special supplies, or whatever benefits you at this time! This grant is NOT for teaching artists or established artists. It is for those finding their way in their career.
These are competitive grants. We want to see your website, your resume, images of your work, and a statement of what you would do with the money if awarded the grant. Past winners have submitted careful budgets and identified specific ways the grant would advance their career.
Applications will be evaluated by three or more reviewers.
For all competitive grants, there is a requirement that you are a current member of IEA (with up-to-date dues) and that you maintain your membership for one full year following the grant year.
You agree to report back to IEA with the results of your grant (what you did, how it worked out for you and how it helped advance your career.) IEA has permission to use your images and report in its publications and marketing. There is a limit of one competitive grant every two years, however, the "open-to-all" lottery grants do not count in this exclusion.
Grant recipients will be announced in early April 2023.
DEADLINE TO ENTER: March 1, 2023
