These unconditional, non-matching awards are made directly to individual artists to help launch or support their careers in the inspiring world of repurposed art.

How much: Award amounts are not disclosed.

Pollock-Krasner Foundation Accepting Grant Applications From Artists With Financial Need

What: The mission of the Pollock-Krasner Foundation is to aid, internationally, those individuals who have worked as artists over a significant period of time. The foundation’s dual criteria for grants are recognizable artistic merit and financial need, whether professional, personal, or both.

The foundation welcomes applications year-round from painters, sculptors, and artists who work on paper, including printmakers. Applications are encouraged from artists who have genuine financial needs that are not necessarily catastrophic.

When: The application process is ongoing, and there are no deadlines. The selection process can take between 9 months to a year.

How much: The size of the grant is determined by the individual circumstances of the artist. Professional exhibition history will be taken into consideration. Artists must be actively exhibiting their current work in a professional artistic venue such as a gallery or museum space.
