Hawai‘i State Foundation is currently accepting applications

HONOLULU — The Hawai‘i State Foundation on Culture and the Arts is currently accepting applications for its 2014–15 Folk & Traditional Arts Grants.

The postmark application deadline is March 4.

Apprenticeship Grants are available for eligible apprenticeship teams, which consist of an accomplished and recognized folk or traditional teaching artist and an experienced apprentice.

All folk and traditional arts from every cultural community in Hawai‘i will be considered. Maximum grant is $5,000 for each of the two years. Prospective teaching artists and apprentices must identify one another and apply together as a team. Applicants must be legal residents of the state of Hawai‘i. Apprentices must be at least 16 years old. Only one application per teaching artist or apprentice can be submitted.

Culture Learning Grants for eligible nonprofit organizations are also available. Organizations must have at least one year of experience in programs in which children and/or families learn through hands-on experience about their own culture artistic traditions (i.e. song and music, dance, storytelling, arts and crafts).

Applications for folk and traditional arts from non-Hawaiian Pacific Islander and Southeast Asian cultures in Hawai‘i will be considered. Maximum grant is $10,000 for each of the two years.
