Scholarships Available for the 2015 Americans for the Arts Convention, Applications close February 26th!

Americans for the Arts is offering scholarships to help you attend our Annual Convention, held this year in Chicago, June 12-14–and also several preconferences, including Art, Power, and Empowerment: Acting for Cultural Equity. You can be reimbursed up to $500.00 for the main conference or preconference registration costs and associated travel and hotel accommodations costs after Annual Convention.

Art, Power, and Empowerment: Acting for Cultural Equity is a brand new preconference that explores issues of cultural equity, representation, democracy, and the arts. It will be a community-based, artistically infused, immersive learning experience, for a maximum of 120 participants, that will take place in arts and culture venues throughout Chicago. Participants will explore and debate the values, policies, and practices required to achieve true and sustained cultural equity.

The deadline to apply is Thursday, February 26, 2015. Applicants must be individual members of Americans for the Arts or receiving benefits through a member organization. Applicants can apply for multiple scholarships but selected recipients will only be awarded one scholarship. Recipients are selected on a competitive basis by a committee composed of Americans for the Arts staff and outside panelists. All applicants will be notified of their standing on Friday, March 20th.
