APS Individual Grant Program
The Association of Print Scholars welcomes applications for individual grants in an effort to encourage innovative scholarship on printmaking and collaboration among the print community. Funding will range from $500-$1000 and will support (but is not limited to) research projects, programs, and publications that advance knowledge of printmaking. Guidelines for applying are intentionally broad: awardees should aim to further the mission of APS and provide opportunities to bring together diverse print scholars and types of expertise. A panel of the field’s senior members will review applications.
Grants will be awarded twice per year. Applications are due by February 1 (for March award) or August 1 (for September award). One to two projects will be funded per grant cycle, and examples of previously funded projects are available below.
Applications must include the following materials, which should be sent to Angela Campbell, Grants Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- A brief statement describing the proposed project and its connection to APS’s mission (500 words maximum)
- A proposed budget. If the APS grant is in addition to major funding, please detail how an award could further enrich research, programs, publication, etc.
- CV for applicant(s)
Successful applicants are requested to submit a brief report and, if possible, images or other documentation of their grant project within one month of its completion. All current APS members are eligible to apply.
