Asian Cultural Council Grants and Fellowships
Deadline: November 14
The Asian Cultural Council supports cultural exchange between Asia and the United States in the performing and visual arts, primarily by providing individual fellowship grants to artists, scholars, students, and specialists from Asia for study, research, travel and creative work in the United States. Grants are also awarded to Americans engaged in similar activities in Asia and to arts organizations and educational institutions for specific projects of particular significance to Asian-American cultural exchange. In addition, the Council awards a small number of grants in support of regional exchange activities within Asia. The ACC’s geographic purview covers an extensive area of Asia ranging from Afghanistan to Japan. Because the Council’s grant funds are limited, however, priority consideration is currently being given to applicants from that area of Southeast and East Asia extending eastward from Burma through Japan. Grants are made in the following fields: archaeology, architecture (design, theory, and history), art history, art and architectural conservation, crafts, dance, film, museology, music, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, theater, and video.
