Arts Writers Grant Program

The Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant Program provides grants directly to individual writers whose work addresses contemporary visual art. The grant program is spearheaded by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts as part of its broader Arts Writing Initiative and is administered by Creative Capital.

The grant program was founded in recognition of both the financially precarious situation of arts writers and their indispensable contribution to a vital artistic culture.
The program, which issues awards for articles, blogs, books, new and alternative media, and short-form writing, aims to support the broad spectrum of writing on contemporary visual art, from general-audience criticism to academic scholarship.

Amount: $3,000 - $50,000

Endangered Language Fund

The Endangered Language Fund provides grants for language maintenance and linguistic field work.

The work most likely to be funded is that which serves both a native community and the field of linguistics. Work that has immediate applicability to one group and more distant application to the field also will be considered. Publishing subventions are a low priority but will be considered. Proposals can originate in any country. The language involved must be in danger of disappearing within a generation or two. Endangerment is a continuum, and the language's location on the continuum is one factor in ELF's funding decisions.

Amount: $2,000

Date due: April 20, 2012
