This grant is open to all individual artists over the age of 18, who have lived in Indiana for a minimum of one year, are not in a degree-granting program as of the deadline, are not recent IAP grantees, and are working in the fields of: Dance, Literature, Music, and Theatre.
The Individual Artist Program is an Indiana Arts Commission program tailored to the development of the individual artist and allows Indiana residents to apply for up to $2,000 in grant funding for specific project-related costs that will have a positive impact on the artist’s career. The deadline for the fiscal year 2012 IAP grant will be February 14, 2011. A new schedule was instituted in 2011: The IAP program will only accept applications in Dance, Literature, Music, and Theatre disciplines in the even fiscal years (such as 2012).
