ACC Now Accepting Applications for Cultural Exchange Grants

ACC

Type of Opportunity: Call for Grant Applications

Deadline: November 15, 2018

Artists, scholars, and arts professionals are invited to submit proposals by November 15.

Our 2019 application cycle is now open. Artists, scholars, and arts professionals are invited to submit proposals for travel and cultural exchange between Asia and the U.S., or between countries in Asia. The deadline for submissions is November 15, 2018 (11:59PM EST).

Since its inception in 1963 as the Asian Cultural Program of the JDR 3rd Fund, ACC has operated a program of long-term, immersive fellowships and shorter-term grants for individual artists, scholars, and arts and humanities professionals who wish to pursue specialized training not available in their home countries; find new creative inspiration through travel, research, and exploration; or pursue targeted research projects aligned with ACC’s mission of advancing international understanding. The ACC program builds relationships that deepen cross-cultural ties beyond the duration of the grant.

The Asian Cultural Council makes grants to support international travel and cultural exchange between Asia and the U.S., and among the countries of Asia. The large majority of grants are awarded directly to individual artists, scholars, and arts specialists. Organizations that will facilitate a cultural exchange opportunity for artists, scholars, or arts specialists may also apply on behalf of the individual project participants.

We believe that the arts have a unique ability to communicate. We believe that individuals – through in-person collaboration and the exchange of ideas – can forge bonds that transcend difference.

Prospective applicants should read the description of ACC’s program, as well as our Eligibility Guidelines and Grant Categories pages. If your proposed activities align with ACC’s work, and if you meet our eligibility guidelines, visit How to Apply to learn more about the application process.
