Grant Deadlines Approaching Rapidly

The Maine Arts Commission receives more applications for the June deadlines of the artists’ grants than for all of our other grant programs put together.
The $13,000 fellowship grants have a deadline for the Performing, Literary, Visual and Traditional Arts Fellowships of June 12. The Traditional Arts Apprenticeship program shares the same deadline.

To ensure a completely impartial review process the staff of the Maine Arts Commission is currently undergoing their annual task of preparing panelist reviews that consist of experts in the relative fields from outside of Maine. The agency is thankful for the many visitors to the state in the summer, including those in residency.

This year will be even busier than the last as we review grants for the Maine Arts Commission’s stimulus funding. The deadline for that grant is May 29.
