While projects in this category may focus on just one of these areas, the Arts Endowment recognizes that many of the most effective projects encompass both artistic excellence and enhanced access. Support is available to organizations for projects that do one or more of the following: * Provide opportunities for artists to create, refine, perform, and exhibit their work. * Present artistic works of all cultures and periods. * Preserve significant works of art and cultural traditions. * Enable arts organizations and artists to expand and diversify their audiences. * Provide opportunities for individuals to experience and participate in a wide range of art forms and activities. * Enhance the effectiveness of arts organizations and artists. * Employ the arts in strengthening communities.

Guidelines and Instructions

  1. By far the most important thing to note about this list is that it refers to ONLY radio-related FELLOWSHIPS and GRANTS.
  2. By its very nature, it is often hard to determine where to draw the line as to what to include in the list and what to exclude. If the agency in question specifically states that they give a fellowship/grant either generally to 'broadcast media' or specifically to radio projects, we have included it. If the agency contacted stated it does not give fellowships/grants to radio producers, the entry was not included in this list.
  3. For the most part, these are domestic U. S. fellowships and grants, although we have included some key foreign ones as well. Also, because the territory we cover is so vast, there are many local or regional fellowships and grants we haven't included. If you know of others, please tell us.
  4. The dates for "Deadline" should be used in a general sense. To confirm the official deadlines and complete rules for any of the fellowships/grants listed, you MUST contact the agency itself. Because there are so many agencies with different application and fellowship calendars, these dates sometimes refer to the current official deadline, but they might refer to last year's deadline. This list should be used for general planning purposes only! OFFICIAL DATES MUST BE CONFIRMED WITH THE AGENCY ITSELF!
  5. This is a work-in-progress. We have tried to be as inclusive and accurate as possible, but with this much data, changes occur all the time. Please use our Fellowships Directory Update Form to send errors, corrections, omissions and suggestions. Also, the vast majority of these fellowships and grants are honorable and respectable, but if any of the agencies seem to be a bit shady or disreputable, let us know of your experiences with them.
  6. If you win a fellowship or grant -- from this list or elsewhere -- please let us know: airspace@airmedia.org.
