Fellowship Training Video

Two training videos are now on YouTube related to our Fellowship Grant Program.  If you are not able to attend a workshop please look at these videos for information on how to apply.  The current grant application form and guidelines are available on our grants page in a Word format.  You can also request a copy by calling 218-745-9111 or emailing Mara.

This first video relates to eligibility for our fellowship program.

Here is the link to Director Mara Wittman going over the application process and some of the guideline information for individuals applying for our fellowship grant.

New Artist Fellowship Application Form

Please use the following updated form Fellowship Grant 2013 available in a Word format to apply for our Fellowship grant.  The upcoming grant deadline is October 15, 2012.  This is a post mark deadline.

As an applicant, you complete your narrative and budget stating what you would do if awarded a $1,500.00 grant.  If the review panel selects you to receive a $1,500.00 grant then you are reviewed a second time.  If you make it through the second review criteria you will be selected to receive a $5,000.00 grant!

Applicants need to submit several items to be eligible.  Please look over the Fellowship Guidelines 2013 and read carefully the information page in the application form.  Our grants page has more information related to applying and links.  Grant writing workshop for our fellowship grant will occur in the next few weeks.  One session is scheduled for Thursday, September 27 at 4:00 at our office in Warren.  You must RSVP.  218-745-9111

Student Application Error

Hello!  I am hearing, through the email grapevine, that our links to our student application form and guidelines, may not always link to the right location.  Some computers want to connect to advertising instead!  And you probably do not need to shrink your belly fat or atleast that is not what we think you need!

Please just send me an email if you are having trouble and I can quickly send you the links. Here is the full application again as a pdf Student Full App and Guidelines … just in case it works in this post.

Aww… technology.

Student Summer Training Camps

Please share your ideas and recommendations!  What great summer training camps exist for our area high school students?

We offer our student artist training grant for $500.00 to area youth.  The spring deadline is a great time for students in 8th to 12th grade to apply to attend a music, dance, theater, writing, visual art, photography, video, or mixed media camp!

I know about the International Music Camp because that is where I went when I was in 10th grade.  It lead to a trip touring Europe in my Junior year of high school with a choir.  Wonderful experience!

Grant Deadline Nov 1

Big encouragement for applications!  Main deadline for Arts Legacy grants, Arts Project grants and Artists in the Schools grants is November 1, 2011.  See the old grants page at for the best information.  I am still adding to this new site and the grants section is not complete yet, sorry.  I have created a version of the Arts Legacy grant application in Word 2007.  Yay!  I hope it works with your computer system.   ACHF Full Application in Word for 2012
