Grants Available for Ceramic Sculpture Artists

Awards:  $50,000, $20,000, $10,000 (3 awards total, 1 in each amount)

  • Students enrolled in or attending, either full-time or part-time, any institution of higher learning are not eligible.
  • Work completed as a student is not eligible.
  • Teachers are eligible if their program plan is for their development as artists rather than as teachers.
  • The grant is not for the support of continued academic training.
