Alternative Art School: TAAS stands firmly on a commitment to the production of dreams, alternatives, social relationships, and inner-dialogues produced in tandem with an active caring for each other and our planet. They offer a structured and intimate global extension of your local embodied art practice. With a growing roster of extraordinarily talented artists, curators, dreamers, and do-ers, they allow access and connection across a disparate array of experiences and disciplines. Learn more here.
The Pollock-Krasner Foundation grants: The Pollock Krasner Foundation's dual criteria for grants are recognizable artistic merit and demonstrable financial need, whether professional, personal or both. The Foundation's mission is to aid, internationally, those individuals who have worked as professional artists over a significant period of time. Apply here.
Rauschenberg Emergency Grants: provides one-time grants of up to $5,000 for medical or dental emergencies. The grants are available to visual and media artists, and choreographers living anywhere in the US. Applications accepted on a rolling basis. Apply here.
Awesome Foundation Grant – A micro-granting organization, funding “awesome” ideas, The Awesome Foundation set up local chapters around the world to provide rolling grants of $1000 to “awesome projects.” Each chapter defines what is “awesome” for their local community, but most include arts initiative and public or social practice art projects. Apply here.
Fulbright Fellowship for the Creative and Performing Arts - Fulbright Program has been sending students, academics and professionals across the world to conduct research, study, teach and act as ambassadors to the US since 1945. A rigorous process of securing recommendations, outlining a proposal and finding a host sponsor, it’s best to get started on this application early. But with approximately 8,000 grants annually awarded, it’s worth the time to see if you can be one of the artists who embark on an international adventure while doing some good.
