ARTIST Grants

The human spirit craves art as a way to explore the joys and complexities of life.  We consider the efforts of individual artists to be vital for our world and deserving of our attention and support.  

The Lincoln City Fellowship Artist Fund was established to release individual artists from the restrictions of fiscal responsibilities that prevent him or her from achieving their artistic goals.  These grants aid artists in creating project that he or she may not have the monetary means to complete, while also enhancing an artists professional capacity.  Grants have the purpose of achieving a specific creative objective, such as producing a work of art, or improving or enhancing the capacity, skill, or talent of the grantee.

Recipients of the Lincoln City Fellowship have made award winning albums, published books, created new theatre works, and produced acclaimed global photography and visual art.   

Application is by invitation only.  If you would like to introduce yourself, please send an email to info@speranzafoundation.com and provide 500 word summary of your project.
