The 2013 Travel and Study Grant Program, administered by Jerome Foundation, will award grants to emerging creative artists (composers, sound artists, playwrights, creators of performance art and experimental theater, and visual artists). Minnesota-based executive and program administrators working for nonprofit arts organizations in music, theater, and visual arts are eligible to apply. The deadline for applications in Music, Theater, and Visual Arts is Feb. 25, 2013.
The program places emphasis on individual exploration and growth. It supports such activities as research leading to the creation of new work, the development of collaborations, participation in specific training programs, time for reflection and individualized study, investigating artistic work outside of Minnesota or New York City, and dialogue on aesthetic issues.
There will be four information meetings in which Jerome Foundation staff will explain the program’s purpose, eligibility requirements, and application process. The majority of the meeting time will be dedicated to questions from those who attend. You do not need to make a reservation, nor do you need to attend a meeting in order to apply.
Application materials are available on the website at www.jeromefdn.org and in paper form upon request to the Jerome Foundation office, 400 Sibley Street, Suite 125, St. Paul, MN55101-1928. Phone 651-224.9431 or 1-800-995-3766.
