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. This cycle, we're accepting visual arts (crafts, design, media arts, photography) applications.
It's important that you download and read the grant guidelines. Save these guidelines for your own records and to refer back to during the application/grant process.
