Artist Foundation of San Antonio Awards
In 2015, the Foundation will make its tenth cycle of awards to artists residing in Bexar County, Texas, giving $627,500 to 112 artists since 2006. Each award is for $5,000 and is made for the creation of new, original work. The awards are designed to recognize artistic achievement, dedication to an artistic discipline and the potential for further professional development. Awards are made for a proposed project, which may already be in progress but should be completed by the end of the grant period of one year. Prior to receiving award funds, artists must sign a contract with the Foundation that specifies certain responsibilities. These responsibilities are found in the application guidelines and are intended to ensure that the award funds will be used in a manner that satisfies the Foundation's charitable purposes.
