Grants Roundup: Deadlines for the Week of Nov. 11

Though far from the only thing, grants are among the main things we do here. Because of their importance in our work, and what they mean to so many of you, The Hub wants to help keep Arts Commission grants top-of-mind and reduce the number of times people say, "If only we'd known about (X or Y) grant!" We can't reach everybody, but we can try. On Mondays with deadlines on the horizon, "Grants Roundup" highlights first what grants are due that week and then includes what's coming later in increments.

This week

These are to serve mainly as final reminders to finish in-progress applications. Most grant applications simply cannot be undertaken well in this short a time frame. Consult an appropriate member of our team with questions.

S.C. Arts Commission offers $5,000 to state’s artists

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 24 October 2018

  • Fellowships are available to artists in four disciplines
  • Deadline to apply is Thursday, Nov. 8.
COLUMBIA, S.C. – It’s not a multi-state lottery win, but there are more recipients and they’ll at least get the full, stated value. Individual artist fellowships of $5,000 are awarded every spring by the South Carolina Arts Commission. The deadline to apply for the next year’s class of four accomplished artists is Thursday, Nov. 8. Four awards will be given to one artist in four different artistic disciplines: visual art, craft, music composition, and music performance. The different disciplines rotate, and it takes four years to complete a cycle. However, visual arts and craft awards are given every two years because of the volume of applicants. “These are unrestricted awards the Arts Commission uses to recognize artistic achievement by South Carolina’s exceptional artists,” S.C. Arts Commission Deputy Director Milly Hough said. That means artists can use the award to invest in their work with additional learning or supplies or use it to pay bills or buy groceries. The process is competitive, but completely anonymous, Hough said. The panel of judges comes from other states, but applicants must be U.S. and South Carolina residents with a full-time residence in state for two years before applying and plans to remain in-state through the fellowship period (July 2019 through June 2020). Applications may only be submitted online by midnight Thursday, Nov. 8. To learn more and apply, visit SouthCarolinaArts.com. Further questions can be answered by discipline coordinators at the arts commission: Harriett Green for visual art and craft (hgreen@arts.sc.gov or 803.734.8763) or Joy Young  for music (jyoung@arts.sc.gov or 803.734.8203).
