Project Grant
Eligibility & Application Procedures

ELIGIBILITY

Etant donnés: The French-American Fund for Contemporary Art offers financial support in the form of grants to American nonprofit institutions organizing exhibitions, installations, or projects by living French artists (or artists being influential for a younger generation) or to French nonprofit institutions presenting the same types of projects involving living American artists. Qualifying exhibitions may be in the fields of painting, drawing, installation, sculpture, architecture and design, as well as video art.

Only nonprofit institutions may submit applications to the Fund. American institutions must demonstrate their 501(c)(3) status granted by the IRS; French organizations must provide proof of equivalent status for eligibility. More specifically:

• American institutions may submit projects involving at least one French artist (French citizen or legal resident of France for more than five 5 years);
• Project organized in collaboration with French institutions or curators will be a priority;
• French institutions may submit projects involving at least one American artist (United States citizens or legal resident of the United States for more than 5 years);
• Grants are not allocated to individual artists;
• Applications for projects which have already begun are ineligible. The Artistic Committee prefers to review projects at least 3 months before they begin and only projects starting at least 6 weeks after the application deadline (after June 1st) are eligible;
• Applicants may reapply to the Fund for the same project only if the project has developed or changed significantly since the last application.
