(Indianapolis, Indiana) – The Indiana Arts Commission (IAC) announced today that Hoosier
artists in selected disciplines have until Friday, February 6, 2015 to submit grant
applications for the IAC’s Individual Artist Program.
Eligible projects will only be considered in the areas of: dance, literature, music, theatre,
and folk arts related to the traditional disciplines listed here. Artists with disabilities are
encouraged to apply for projects related to the eligible disciplines either through the
discipline directly or through the access category.
Individual artists living and working in Indiana may apply for up to $2,000 from the IAP
grant, which requires no matching funds. The grants are intended to assist artists with
specific project-related costs that will help them further their career and provide some form
of public benefit through the completed project.
The application guidelines and the online grant application system are currently accessible
on the IAC website and can be found at: www.in.gov/arts/individualartistprogram.htm.
Application for IAP grants will only be available through the online grant system, and artists
are encouraged to read through the guidelines completely before starting the application
process. The deadline for application is February 6, 2015.
Applicants must be 18 years of age, must be an Indiana resident for at least one year prior
to the date of application, and plan to remain in the state for the full grant period. Artists
may not be enrolled in a degree-granting program. All projects must be completed between
July 1, 2015 and June 30, 2016.
