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 exists to financially support individual artists in order to allow them the time and space required for individual expression and creation.  Recipients of the Lincoln City Fellowship have produced award winning albums, published books, created new theatre works, and 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.
