Write a Better Artist Grant Application in 15 Steps

1. Develop a Project Idea
Ask yourself:

“What will I do?”
“Where will I make it? Where will I show, perform, or publish my project?”
“When will I make it? When will it be seen?”
“How will I do it?”
“Why is this an important project to myself and other people? Why is it important to my career right now?”

If you can’t answer these questions, you probably aren’t ready to propose a grant.

2. Start Early
Start two months in advance. You need time to write a proposal, hire a photographer, contact a granting officer, format your material , and ship the package. There can be technical difficulties when submitting online. You don’t want those to happen at 11pm the night the proposal due. Besides, we all make mistakes when under pressure. Get started early, and you won’t find

writing a grant stressful

3. Check Your Eligibility
Nothing is worse than an application getting automatically rejected because of ineligibility. If you are unsure, contact the funding officer. Make sure to apply to grants that are meant for you. It will increase your success and save a lot of time. One clue is to look at past recipients. A funding body may say they want writers, visual artists, and filmmakers. Yet, if their past recipients are only filmmakers than it’s not the best grant for a visual artist. There are a lot of opportunities out there, so take the time to find the right one. Don’t bend your work and application to suit a funding body. It usually doesn’t work.
