Grants of up to $2,000 to Alaska individual artists to preserve traditional art forms through apprenticeships. Applicants must contact funding source staff prior to applying. A qualifying apprentice can apply for support to work with a master artist to study an Alaska Native traditional art form. Priority will be given to apprenticeships in which the artist will be studying within his or her own cultural traditions.

The majority of the budget will be used for the Master Artist’s fee. The remaining funds will be used to offset the costs of raw materials used in the project and to cover travel costs essential to the apprenticeship.

Grants may be an any amount but usually do not exceed $2,000.

The Alaska State Council on the Arts operates on the State of Alaska fiscal year, which begins July 1 and ends June 30. All funds must be expended within the fiscal year the grant is awarded.

Apprentice must:

-Be 18 years or older and comply with AS 01.10.055 state residency requirements on and after the date the application is submitted

-Have identified a Master Artist willing to accept you as an apprentice

-Demonstrate experience in the art form in which you are applying

-Not be enrolled as a full-time student during the period of the grant

Master must

-Be 18 years or older and comply with AS 01.10.055 state residency requirements on and after the date the application is submitted

-Agree to accept the applicant as an apprentice

-Only act as a Master instructor one time per state fiscal year

-Provide support of expertise in the art-form in which the apprentice has applied

-Provide recognition by cultural community members of your proficiency and skill in the Native art form in which the apprentice has applied

Conditions and Limitations:

-Grant funds may not be used for the purchase of tools or equipment, academic scholarships or tuition assistance or for high school or college level credit.

-Grant funds may be used for Master Artist fees, to partially offset the costs of raw materials to be used in the project, and to cover travel costs essential to the apprenticeship. The apprentice does not receive payment for their work. Local in-town travel will not be funded. All expenditures for travel or materials must be supported by receipts in the final report.

-It is the position of the Council that learning within the immediate family should occur without the assistance of State Arts Council funding. A Master Artist and Apprentice grant may be awarded if the master artist is a member of the apprentice's immediate family, only if the skill and understanding of the art form or technology is traditionally transferred to subsequent generations within a family or if the art form or technology is endangered. "Member of the apprentice's immediate family" means a person who is a spouse, sibling or blood relation up to and including the second degree of kinship (parents, grandparents, children and grandchildren, and a regular household member).

Applicants are required to contact and discuss their proposal with Alaska State Council on the Arts staff prior to submitting an application. Special assistance is available for applicants with disabilities.
