Arts Writers Grant Program

Arts Writers Grant Program

This Deadline Expired: Friday, May 22, 2020

The Arts Writers Grant Program was founded in 2006 to recognize the precarious situation of arts writers and their indispensable contribution to a vital artistic culture. As the COVID-19 outbreak further threatens the cultural and arts writing landscape, AWGP is grateful for the Andy Warhol Foundation’s continued support.

The program supports both emerging and established writers who are writing about contemporary visual art with grants ranging from $15,000 to $50,000 in three categories — articles, books, and short-form writing. Grants are intended to support projects that address both general and specialized art audiences, from short reviews for magazines and newspapers to in-depth scholarly studies. The program also support art writing that engages criticism through interdisciplinary methods or experiments with literary styles.

As long as he/she meets the eligibility and publishing requirements, any writer can apply. Writers who meet the program’s eligibility requirements are invited to apply in one of the following categories: articles, books, or short-form writing. (Eligibility requirements and writing sample submission word counts vary for each project type.)

AWGP recommends that applicants read through the Application Guide before filling out the online application.
