Individual Artist Grants
To encourage the development of entirely original artistic works, SEMAC offers two distinct grants for individual artists.
- Emerging Artist Grants offer small but critical support for specific projects by developing artists from all disciplines who are committed to advancing their work. The maximum request for emerging artists is $2,500.
- Advancing Artist Grants recognize, reward, and encourage outstanding individual artists and provide some financial support to enable them to continue their work. The maximum request for advancing artists is $5,000.
No matching funds are required for Individual Artist Grants. Grants to individual artists are taxable income. Consult a tax adviser if you have questions about taxable income.
Proposals will be accepted from individual artists who are 18 or older, not currently enrolled in high school, and are full-time residents of the SEMAC region.
The individual artist grant program is generously supported by a private foundation.
