The Leeway Foundation's Transformation Award

The Leeway Foundation's grantmaking programs honor the transformative work of women and trans artists. The Transformation Award fund women and trans people in the Delaware Valley region (Bucks, Camden, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia counties) who create art for social change.

Transformation Award

This is an annual, unrestricted (not project-based) award of $15,000 for women and trans artists in the Delaware Valley who create art for social change and have done so for at least five years, as well as demonstrating continued growth and commitment to this work.

2006 Transformation Award Deadlines: April 10 (Stage 1), August 18 [(Stage 2), by invitation only]

The Award application is a two-stage process.

Stage 1: Open to all eligible women artists. After a review of applications (basic eligibility and five questions about their art and change work), all applicants will receive notification and selected artists will receive invitations to apply to Stage 2, by mid July 2006.

Stage 2: By invitation. All invited applicants will receive a $150 application stipend to cover the costs of preparing work samples. Invited artists will receive notification and announcement of final awardees in December 2006.
