Posted by: Alberta Foundation for the Arts

Deadline: Tuesday, September 1, 2020 @ 12:00 AM

AFA Individual Project Grants
Get your grant proposals in by September 1, 2020.

The deadline to apply for the AFA’s Individual Project Grants is less than a month away! Individual project funding provides up to $15,000 to support development of individual Alberta artists through four broad categories:

  • art production (art creation)
  • research
  • marketing
  • training and career development

For the September 1 grant intake, the AFA Board approved a one-time, temporary change to individual artist funding opportunities to accommodate re-submission of March 2020 project applications. Artists may resubmit their projects even if activities commenced prior to resubmission.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to update and/or revise project descriptions to reflect how they are addressing COVID-19 pandemic impacts on the successful completion of their projects. Applicants must meet all other program requirements to be eligible for funding.

Please note: The AFA only accepts grant and scholarship applications through Grant Administration Tracking and Evaluation (GATE) online application system. First-time applicants will require a GATE username and password.

Email to obtain your GATE login information five days before to the deadline. Please include:

  • your legal name
  • the funding opportunity to which you are applying
  • your email address

Your GATE user name and password will be sent to the email address provided.
