Grants support teaching, learning, and collaborating of traditional and/or contemporary Native art forms between two Native artists from two different regions. Grants up to $1,500 are available per exchange.
Native American artist applicants must:
Be Native American, Alaska Native, or Native Hawaiian.
Reside in any of the 50 United States.
Note: Applicants may receive one National Native Artist Exchange grant per cycle (June 1 through May 31).
Funding may be used for travel expenses for Native artists to exchange with artists from other tribes/nations outside their own region to share, teach, and learn skills, do research, and/or to develop collaborative projects. Acceptable expenses include lodging, meals, ground and air travel, and other direct costs of the artist exchange.
