Opportunity Description

U.S. National Deadline: August 14, 2024 – Integrity: Arts & Culture Association (IACA) Mini-Grants generally average $250, and are intended to assist with such things as: artistic supplies, recordings, studio time, exhibits, performances, project related expenses, residences, etc. This is our way of planting seeds that we believe will continue to grow. Given the pandemic, funding requests for remote programs and projects are most welcome.

This program was started in honor of every artist who has ever impacted the life of another. In honor of our teachers, our mentors, and even those who have deeply touched our lives from afar, we encourage you to keep living your dreams with passion. Keep changing the world for the better. We believe in you and we support you!

SELECTIONS
Grants are awarded based on merit and organizational priorities. Jurors are made up of a committee of industry professionals, whom we allow to remain anonymous. The jury process allows committee members to recuse themselves from evaluating particular applicants, when necessary; and to indicate a level of confidence in each review they provide.

Jurors will review all applications and select finalists. At the end of the grant cycle, all finalists will be reviewed once again and one or more winners will be selected. If a high number of grant applications are received, we reserve the right to award more money.

All applicants will be notified of the winners via email.
