The coveted national award recognizes artistic excellence and includes support ranging up to $20,000 per artist. Awards will be made in six artistic disciplines, including: performing arts, filmmaking, literature, music, traditional arts and visual arts.
To apply, artists who are members of federally and state-recognized U.S. tribes, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian communities can review criteria and complete an application at http://your.culturegrants.org.
To date, the foundation has recognized 41 American Indian, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian artists with the unique national award. Past fellows are ineligible for applying for the current year’s award. The foundation will announce award recipients in August 2015. "
