Guidelines are now available for the 2012 USArtists International program (USAI). USAI provides support for American dance, music, and theater ensembles and solo artists invited to perform at significant international festivals or engagements that represent extraordinary career opportunities anywhere in the world (outside the United States and its territories). Grants will seldom cover the applicant's total expenses and generally range from $1,000 to $10,000 USD.
First Round Deadline is September 6, 2011 for projects taking place between November 1, 2011 and October 31, 2012. This is a receipt deadline.
Additional deadlines for the 2012 program cycle include:
December 9, 2011 for projects taking place between March 1, 2012 and February 28, 2013
April 20, 2012 for projects taking place between July 1, 2012 and June 30, 2013
