Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $10,000 to USA individual artists who are under-recognized in the field of visual arts. Applications will be evaluated according to the artistic quality of the applicant’s work and the potential to foster aesthetic inquiry. Grant funds may be used to support any activity that promotes artistic development. To determine whether an artist is under-recognized, the Foundation looks at an artist’s resume and overall presence in the field.

Number of Grants:

The number of awards is determined each year by the annual granting budget.

Estimated Size of Grant:

Awards are made of up to $10,000.

Term of Contract:

Grantees have 10 months to report back once funds are received. Extensions must be requested in writing and a progress report must be submitted.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Artists who have been supported by an organizational grant from Harpo in the past are eligible to apply for a direct grant.

Self-defined under-recognized visual artists who are not students but are U.S. citizens may submit proposals on their own behalf. Non-U.S. citizens, even permanent residents of the U.S., are not eligible. Artists who are students at the time of the application deadline are not eligible.

Creative writing, dance, theater and film all fall outside of the Foundation's purview. However, a proposal with an interdisciplinary approach may be considered as long as it has a strong visual art component.

Pre-Application Information:

The deadline to submit an application for the 2021 grant cycle is April 30, 2021. The online application will go ‘live’ on February 26, 2021. Grant decisions are usually announced no later than December 1.

To apply, a $15 application fee is required. Fees are applied to grant administration and program development.
