Grants of up to $750 to Edmonton, Alberta nonprofit organizations, artists, as well as arts educators and arts and festival administrators, to cover travel costs. Eligible travel is associated with attending conferences and exhibitions for training, development, marketing, and presentation purposes.

CIP Travel Grants through the Edmonton Arts Council assist Edmonton residents active in the arts and festival communities with travel costs to the benefit of both themselves and the citizens of Edmonton.

Funds are intended to support:

  • Artists, arts educators, and arts or festival administrators
  • Travel for the purposes of training, development, presentation or marketing 
  • Economical, round-trip travel to and from Edmonton
  • Projects that benefit the applicant and the Edmonton community

The jury will in all cases consider:

  • The project’s potential or proven benefit to the applicant
  • The project’s potential or proven benefit to the Edmonton community
  • The degree to which this opportunity is unique and unavailable locally
  • The degree to which the applicant’s previous record of activity and achievement demonstrates that they warrant public support
