Professional Development Grants

The Professional Development Grant Program assists artists or arts administrators with opportunities that specifically improve their business management development skills and/or brings the artist or the arts organization to another level artistically

Proposals in the Professional Development Grant Program cannot be geared toward the creation of a specific art project, but must clearly demonstrate how the proposal will benefit the organization or individual long-term. Professional Development Grants are strictly intended to assist artists and arts administrators with unique experiences directly related to career or organizational development. These grants are available to residents in Clackamas, Multnomah and Washington Counties, in Oregon and are offered in two Cycles – Spring and Fall.
