About the Fund
The Dame Joan Sutherland Fund provides small grants to Australians and Americans who show great talent in the fields of theater, dance, film & television music, literary arts, visual arts, crafts and design. 

The American Australian Association established the Dame Joan Sutherland Fund in 1998 for Australian aspiring artists. It was launched at the release of Dame Joan's book in New York A Prima Donna's Progress.

Dame Joan Alston Sutherland, OM, DBE, AC

The Australian dramatic coloratura soprano was one of the most remarkable female opera singers of the 20th century, dubbed 'La Stupenda' due to the power and range of her voice. Sutherland was noted for her contribution to the renaissance of the bel canto repertoire from the late 1950s through to the 1980s.
