The New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) awards grants to individual artists and arts organizations in a wide range of disciplines, including dance, film, theater, and music. If you are considering applying in 2020, join The Field’s Deputy Director Shawn René Graham for information on eligibility, tips on writing a competitive application, and the guidelines for applying through The Field. Attendance is strongly encouraged if you are a first-time applicant. Note: Individual artists must be fiscally sponsored in order to apply. If you applied to NYSCA in the Individual Artist Category last year, you are not eligible to apply for the upcoming application cycle.
