The arts and culture field continues to be affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. In response, Americans for the Arts is expanding access to Annual Convention through extended scholarship opportunities. Scholarships are available for those interested in attending the 2021 Annual Convention, happening virtually June 8-11.
In addition to general registration support, opportunities specifically for leaders of color, leaders with disabilities, LGBTQIA+ leaders, emerging professionals, individuals residing in and/or directly serving rural communities, and practicing artists are available for request. Visit the Annual Convention Scholarships page for an in-depth list.
Submit a request today! You must be logged in and have an account with Americans for the Arts to access the request form. The deadline to request a scholarship is Monday, May 3, at 9 a.m. (ET). Priority will be given to members of Americans for the Arts. (Not a member? Join today!)
