The Arts and Humanities Fellowship Program (AHFP) seeks grant applications from qualified individual artists and humanities practitioners who significantly contribute to the District of Columbia as a world class cultural capital. AHFP recognizes the impact of individual artists and humanities practitioners within the District and supports the vitality that those individuals bring to the local community.
CAH will award select applicants (“grantee”) a grant of funds to support the delivery of their proposed program. Grants funds are applicable only to CAH’s Fiscal Year 2019 (“FY 2019”), which occurs from October 1, 2018 to September 30, 2019, and which is referred to as the “Grant Period” in this document. Grant award funds cover expenses made only within CAH’s Grant Period.
Grants are competitive and applications will be organized for review in cohorts listed under the program description. By making its AHFP grant awards, CAH endeavors to meet the following goals, and an applicant’s submission should offer consideration to these goals:
▪ Encourage the contributions of individual artists and humanities practitioners to the District.
▪ Highlight the professional accomplishments and creative excellence of artists and humanities professionals residing in the District;
▪ Provide support to individuals who demonstrate exceptional creativity;
▪ Cultivate a city with a dynamic cultural sector and a large contingent of artists and humanities practitioners.
