Who is Eligible to Apply

Any individual Maine artist who:

•is 18 years of age or older at the time of the application, and
•is not enrolled as a full-time student in a field related to the application, and
•has completed and filed all final reports required for previous Maine Arts Commission grants.

Creators only are eligible to apply. A creator is an artist who consistently produces original work. For example, an artist may apply as a composer, but not as a singer; as a choreographer, but not as a dancer. Applicants must apply with their own original work.

Multi-artist applications must represent a team or group who consistently work together to produce a single body of work. Multi-artist applicants must also own the legal rights to the name being used.

Artists may submit only one application for an Individual Artist Fellowship during a single grant period. All applications are reviewed anonymously to ensure equity.

Applicants are required to apply through the Maine Arts Commission e-GRANT system. E-GRANT will accept applications until 11:59 pm, E.S.T.

Applicants who are unable to apply through e-GRANT must contact Kathy Ann Shaw at 207/287-2750, 877/887-3878 TTY/NexTalk User ID: or to discuss an alternative prior to applying. Alternative submissions will not be accepted without prior authorization.
