Grants Roundup: Deadlines for the Week of Oct. 23

SCAC Deadlines and Coaching Opportunities

Though not the only way, grants are among the main ways the SCAC accomplishes its work.

Because of their importance to that, 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 we hear people say, “If only we’d known about (X or Y) grant!”

Enter the Grants Roundup. On Mondays*, “Grants Roundup” highlights:

  1. what grants are due that week, then what’s due later (in increments) before
  2. providing a rundown on open grant opportunities and then
  3. upcoming grants coaching sessions.

Also, be on the lookout for our digest-style email to current grantees and S.C. Arts Directory artists on the first Monday* of every month from September to (roughly) May. *The Roundup might run on Tuesdays when state holidays occur on a Monday.

SCAC Grant Deadlines

The state of South Carolina and South Carolina Arts Commission fiscal year runs July 1-June 30 each year. We are currently in FY24.


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.

  • n/a


NEXT 30(ish) DAYS


These grants offer convenient deadlines, but you are advised to apply at least six (6) weeks before your project for some. Always consult the guidelines for specific instructions.

*The deadline to apply for FY24 funding is Monday, March 4, 2024.


Important Notes

  • Consult the SCAC grants page for up-to-date information on all grant deadlines (subject to change) and deadlines for non-grant programs.
