Foundations Offer Grants, Prizes, Fellowships -- Issue New Requests For Proposals
Today's Philanthropy News Digest is reporting that three Foundations have over the last three days issued new Requests for Proposals (RFPs):
The National Art Education Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the National Art Education Association (NAEA), is seeking applications for its 2014 Art Educator grants. Through the grant program, the Foundation will award grants of up to $10,000 to NAEA members for programs that support classroom-based art education. Only NAEA members are eligible to receive the awards. The deadline for submitting an application is October 1, 2014.
Meanwhile, the Chicago-based Harpo Foundation is inviting applications for its 2014 Emerging Artist Fellowship. Under this program, one emerging artist will receive a one-month residency at the Santa Fe Art Institute in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The application deadline is July 5, 2014.
Finally, the Vilcek Foundation is inviting applications for the 2015 Vilcek Prize for Creative Promise in Fashion. This program will actually award three prizes of $50,000 each to young, foreign born fashion professionals living and working in the United States who demonstrate outstanding early achievement. The foundation encourages designers, stylists, make-up/hair artists, image makers (including fashion photography, film, animation, and illustration), curators, and writers to apply. The application deadline is June 10, 2014.
