Eligible applicants will be Native artists who both reside in the U.S. and are enrolled citizens of a U.S. federally or state recognized American Indian Nation, Alaska Native Corporation or with other documentation of Native Hawaiian ancestry.

A panel of Native art peers and professionals will review the applications and make recommendations for approval to NACF’s Board of Directors.

To apply, visit our website for more information. Submissions will be accepted from Wednesday, August 9, until Monday, September 25, at5:00 p.m. Pacific Time.
