CT Sea Grant | February 1, 2024

 Applications due May 17, 2024

Connecticut Sea Grant, through its competitive funding program the Arts Support Awards Program, will award up to $1000 to an artist or group of artists. The winning submission will be selected on the basis of aesthetic quality, relevance to coastal and marine environments and Connecticut Sea Grant themes, as well as its potential reach and impact on non-traditional audiences.

Eligibility: Artists or groups of artists who live in Connecticut, or non-Connecticut artists whose work is related to Connecticut’s coastal and marine environments and/or Long Island Sound are eligible for funding consideration. All artistic disciplines are eligible. Previous recipients of Sea Grant Arts Awards are not eligible for five years.

Application Procedure: The application should be submitted electronically as a compiled PDF file with one additional media file (mp3 or mov file), if needed, via email to SeagrantResearch@uconn.edu for receipt no later than 4:30 p.m. ET on Friday May 17, 2024.  If the proposal or additional media file exceeds 3 MB, provide an online link or utilize a dropbox/fileshare utility to transfer the media.  Submissions that are not received by the 4:30 p.m. ET May 17 deadline will not be considered for funding in this year’s competition.
