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.

Who's eligible to apply?

This year we are accepting applications related to the performing arts, like:

  • Dance
  • Literary Arts
  • Music
  • Theatre
  • and Performing Folk Arts

Wait, what about the visual arts? 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 in December 2019.
