The New York Community Trust (NYCT) - Edward and Sally Van Lier Fund
05/05/21 11:59 PM
Grants to New York City nonprofit organizations to administer fellowships for young professional artists. Funding is intended to encourage equity and diversity in the arts. Priority will be given to applicants that help artists from populations that are historically underrepresented in the arts, as determined by, for example, race/ethnicity, ability, and gender.
The New York Community Trust’s Edward and Sally Van Lier Fellowship Program provides support for talented young professionals (aged 18 to 30) from historically underrepresented populations who are dedicated to a career in the arts. Grants will help arts groups provide education, training, or other support through fellowships for young professionals living and working in New York City. Fellowships are intended to help young working artists achieve a significant professional credit that can lead to future career opportunities.
Fellowship activities should be appropriate to both the art form and the development needs of the individual artists. The Trust support a broad range of activities and related costs, such as advanced training and coaching; equipment, instruments, and supplies; commissioning; mentoring; rehearsal and work space; opportunities to create, produce, perform, or publish; professional conferences; and travel and living expenses. Fellows must receive a financial stipend and should gain a significant credit that will advance their careers.
Funds may be used to support or expand an existing effort or begin a new one. Grants are intended to cover fellowship costs; however, a limited amount of administrative costs attributable to the program may be requested. (The grant should primarily benefit fellows rather than the sponsoring organization.)

The Trusts expects to award grants to a small number of arts groups to sponsor two or more artist fellowships.
Grant amounts will depend on the number and size of fellowships and will not exceed $150,000 per organization ($75,000 per year for two years or $50,000 per year for three years). Agencies may request up to $25,000 per fellow, per year, and may request less than this amount.
The Trusts expects to award grants of up to three years.
