    The American Australian Indigenous Arts Scholarships were created to support and develop Indigenous and marginalized individuals and communities, and to build cross-cultural respect, understanding, and reconciliation through all forms of art. We currently offer two scholarships between Australia and the US (one in each direction) that are open for application, outlined below.    
         
   
   
         
   

The American-Australian Indigenous Arts Grant offers a USD $10,000 grant to assist an emerging or early career Indigenous Australian artist in their professional development in the United States.  The grant will be awarded to an Indigenous Australian artist who shows great talent in the fields of theatre, fashion, dance, film & television, music, literary arts, visual arts, crafts and design.

Before you submit an application, please ensure you read all the instructions and eligibility requirements.
