DEADLINE TO APPLY MAY 1, 2019
NOTIFICATION OF AWARD NO LATER THAN SEP 30, 2019
Offered every two years, this program provides production grants of up to $30,000 to early career film, video and digital production directors who reside in Minnesota or the five boroughs of New York City and who work in the experimental, narrative, animation or documentary genres.
This program provides grants to individual filmmakers to support specific projects, both short and full-length, for production and select post-production expenses (not pre-production, or marketing, distribution, or festival fees). The awards of up to $30,000 do not require matching funds.
The program does not fund retroactively: only costs incurred after the grant is awarded and a grant contract is signed will be supported.

The Travel and Study Grant Program awards grants to emerging artists who create new work, rotating the eligible disciplines in alternating years. The eligible disciplines for 2014 are dance, film and video, and literature, including choreographers, film and video directors, and writers of poetry, creative nonfiction, fiction, and spoken word.
The 2014 Travel and Study Grant Program application deadline is February 24, 2014. Travel must occur between June 1, 2014, and December 31, 2016. Applicants not awarded grants in 2014 may reapply in 2016 if the program is offered.
The 2014 Travel and Study Grant Program is supported by the General Mills Foundation, the Art and Martha Kaemmer Fund of the HRK Foudation, and the Jerome Foundation.
Minnesota-based executive and program administrators working for not-for-profit arts organizations in dance, film and video, and literature are also eligible to apply. The program supports such activities as research leading to the creation of new work, the development of collaborations, participation in specific training programs, time for reflection and individualized study, investigating artistic work outside of Minnesota or New York City, and dialogue on aesthetic issues. This program does not support the production of new work or the acquisition of teaching credentials.
Awards are made once per year. Three-person selection panels in each eligible discipline review proposals and recommend recipients to the Jerome Foundation Board, which approves all grants. Selection is based on the quality and potential of the applicant’s work and the significance and appropriateness of the proposed trip. Applications may be reviewed in a two-step process incorporating a first-round screening before panelists review the remaining applications. This program receives many applications and has limited funds available. Although financial need is not a requirement, please consider whether you need these funds to undertake a travel and study trip.
