Foundation / Corporation
Asian Cultural Council (ACC)
Grants to USA and International nonprofit organizations and groups of artists for international travel related expenses. Interested applicants are required to submit a letter of inquiry prior to the full proposal. Funding is intended to support costs such as airfare, visas, and living expenses incurred for the purpose of furthering international cultural exchange and understanding between organizations and art specialists in the US and Asian countries.
Organization and project applicants may apply for activities involving travel between one or more of the following countries or regions: Afghanistan, Indonesia, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Japan, Philippines, Bhutan, Korea, Singapore, Brunei, Laos, Sri Lanka, Cambodia, Macau SAR, Taiwan, China, Malaysia, Thailand, East Timor, Mongolia, Vietnam, Hong Kong SAR, Myanmar, United States, India, and Nepal. However, priority consideration will be given to proposals for travel to or from China, Hong Kong SAR, Japan, Macau SAR, the Philippines, Taiwan, or the United States.
Organization and Project Grant is for organizations that are facilitating a cultural exchange opportunity for individual project participants, or for collaborations involving three or more individuals, Asia-to-U.S., U.S.-to-Asia, or intra-Asia.
The Asian Cultural Council's first priority is to support activities that involve cultural immersion; meaningful cross-cultural engagement; and relationship building, collaboration, or exchange of best practices among peers. Therefore, most of the proposals that receive funding are focused on process rather than production.
Organizations: ACC funding may only be used for the participation of specific individuals in a given project, and awards are made on the assessment of their work; the benefit they will gain from participating in the project; and the importance of their participation to larger goals of cultural exchange. The amount requested should only include expenses directly related to individual project participants.
Projects: As with organization grants, the proposal should make a case for the participation of each individual for whom funding is sought, and the application will be reviewed on the merits of each individual project participant.
ACC supports only those costs associated with travel and research for the specific project participants named in the proposal. Allowable travel expenses may include (but are not limited to) international airfare, local transportation, visas, travel insurance, per diem, accommodations, and living expenses.
