February 24, 2014, has been set as the Application Deadline for the 2014 Travel and Study Grant Program
ELIGIBLE DISCIPLINES: DANCE, FILM AND VIDEO, LITERATURE
The 2014 Travel and Study Grant Program will award grants to emerging creative artists (choreographers, film and video directors, fiction writers, creative nonfiction writers, poets, and spoken word artists). Minnesota-based executive and program administrators working for nonprofit arts organizations in dance, film and video, and literature are eligible to apply. The deadline for applications in dance, film and video, and literature is midnight central time, February 24, 2014. The Travel and Study Grant Program emphasizes individual exploration and growth.
The program supports such activities as research leading to the creation of new work, the development of collaborations, participation in specific training programs, time for reflection and individualized study, investigating artistic work outside of Minnesota or New York City, and dialogue on aesthetic issues. There will be two Information Meetings in which Jerome Foundation staff will explain the program’s purpose, eligibility requirements, and application process. The majority of the meeting time will be dedicated to questions from those who attend. You do not need to make a reservation, nor do you need to attend a meeting in order to apply.
