The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage is pleased to share our new project grant application guidelines for the 2015 grant cycle. The Center makes project grants in two program areas, Exhibitions & Public Interpretation and Performance, supporting both organizations and individual artists. Our grant categories reflect the increasingly interdisciplinary nature of arts and culture practice, and allow us to consider discipline-specific projects as well as projects less easily categorized. Please note that this year there is a single set of guidelines that encompasses both program areas. Below, a PDF of the 2015 guidelines is available for download:

We strongly encourage all potential applicants and Center constituents to familiarize themselves with the guidelines and then call to schedule a one-on-one program meeting with Center senior staff to begin discussing project ideas. You can find the relevant program contact information within the guidelines.

The 2015 grant cycle Letter of Intent deadline is 4 p.m. on November 12, 2014. Full project grant applications are due by 4 p.m. on March 4, 2015.

Check back in early October for access to our digital application system. The guidelines for Advancement Grants and Pew Fellowships will be posted later this fall.
