Grants for Creative Individuals
ASC offers grant programs designed to support the development of creative individuals. ASC grants reward deserving creative individuals with financial assistance to pursue projects that further their artistic development and provide exposure and recognition in the local community.
Grants are awarded on a competitive basis and the ASC Board determines the amount available in any given year.
