About the Program

The Individual Advancement Program (IAP) provides support (up to $2,000) to Indiana artists for career development projects. Applicants must plan a project (or phase of a project) that is feasible within the requested budget and completed within the proposed timeline.

Because the Individual Advancement Program is so popular we only accept certain disciplines per year. We'll accept visual arts (crafts, design, media arts, photography) applications for FY21.
