A Letter to Grant Applicants




Dear Grant Applicant,

Capelli d’Angeli Foundation is offering fellowship grants of up to $500 each for individual women artists who are in treatment or are survivors of cancer at any stage and creating art in the form of painting, sculpture, photography (of all types), and mixed media.  At present we cannot accept video art, other non-three-dimensional art, or writing.

Grants are awarded on a rolling basis and the number of grants given is determined by the funds available. Grant recipients and award amounts will be determined by a review panel on the basis of accomplishment to date and the promise of future achievement as shown by the images presented. 

In addition, each applicant will be required to complete a one to two page essay explaining how her art has helped her deal with her cancer.

There are no restrictions on the subject matter or processes of past or projected work.  However, applicants must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States.  We do not accept applications sent from outside the United States currently.  Also ineligible are students who will be enrolled in degree programs at any time during the applicable calendar year.  Past grant recipients may reapply after three years.

We thank you for your consideration and we look forward to seeing your artwork, essay and application soon!

-Capelli d'Angeli Foundation
