Description

The Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation provides financial grants to art students and artists in the early or developmental stage of their career. The Foundation focuses solely on those who work in a representational style of painting, drawing, sculpture or printmaking and who are committed to making the practice of their art a lifetime career. Candidates must be at least 18 years of age at the time of submitting their application. Grants are made directly to the beneficiaries, not through other organizations. First grants are in the amount of CDN$15,000; second and third grants, in the amount of CDN$18,000. Important: The Foundation does not accept applications from commercial artists, graphic designers and illustrators; photographers; cartoonists; animation artists; video artists, filmmakers and digital artists; craft-makers; artists who work in the decorative arts; or any artist whose work falls primarily into these categories. The Foundation does not provide funding for the pursuit of abstract or non-objective art. Applications may only be accessed through the Foundation's web site. The Foundation does not mail or provide application forms to applicants.
