GRANTS FOR FOLK AND TRADITIONAL ARTS AVAILABLE
Support preserves diverse cultural traditions statewide  
 
Grants from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts to support Folk Arts Apprenticeships are now available. Program guidelines and application information for Fiscal Year 2019 grants are posted on the State Arts Council's website. Grants are for the period of 7/1/18-6/30/19. The deadline to apply is April 5, 2018. 
 
Folk Arts Apprenticeship grants encourage cultural communities to pass on valued, traditional art forms by providing stipends to master folk artists who help apprentices develop important skills. The application process requires that each apprentice apply with a master artist as a team by providing artistic work samples, information about their shared artistic cultural backgrounds, and the planned scope of work.

*NEW THIS YEAR*
 
All applications must be submitted through SAGE
