Asian Cultural Council Invites Applications for 2016 Grants
Asian Cultural Council

The Asian Cultural Council is inviting proposals from individuals “exhibiting an abiding passion” and interest in cultural exchange between the United States and the countries of Asia, as well as among the countries in Asia.

Each year, ACC funds about a hundred established masters as well as tomorrow's rising stars in fields such as archaeology, architecture (design, theory, and history), art history, arts administration, arts criticism, choreography, composition, conceptual art, conservation, crafts, dance, design (noncommercial), film-making, installation art, literature, museology, music, new media, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, theater, video art, video conservation, and work that defies categorization.

Citizens and permanent residents of the United States are eligible to apply for a grant supporting research, study, and creative work. In Asia, ACC grants are open to citizens and permanent residents of countries located east of (and including) Afghanistan  and south of Mongolia. Oceania is not applicable.

Organizations requesting grant support must have 501(c)(3) under the Internal revenue Code or similar nonprofit status such as registration as a nongovernmental organization (NGO). If an organization does not have nonprofit status, fiscal sponsorship is required.

There is no specific amount given for individual fellowships or organizational projects. As grants vary in length of duration (from a month to a year), amounts vary accordingly.

Applicants from Hong Kong, China, Macau, Japan, Taiwan, or the Philippines should apply directly to ACC's Hong Kong, Tokyo, Taipei, and Manila field offices, respectively.
