The 2018 Travel and Study Grant Program will support emerging artists who create new work in dance, film/video/digital production, and literature. The program is open to “generative" artists (choreographers; film, video, and digital production directors; and writers of poetry, creative nonfiction, fiction, and spoken word artists) who have a record of creating original work.
Additionally, with thanks to the HRK Foundation for its generous support, the program is also open to arts administrators in Minnesota who work at organizations who support such artists. New York City-based executives and program administrators are not eligible to apply.
Travel and Study grants support periods of domestic and/or international travel for study, exploration and growth. Eligible activities include (but are not limited) to research informing or leading to the creation of new work, the development of collaborations (whether artistic or organizational), participation in specific non-academic training programs, time for reflection and individualized study, field investigation of work outside of the applicant’s home state, and opportunities to engage in dialogue on aesthetic or organizational issues.
This program will not support rehearsals, performances, exhibitions, touring, or teaching opportunities by grantees, pursuit of academic degrees, the production of new work, or the acquisition of teaching credentials. Students enrolled in academic degree programs at any level are not eligible to apply.
