The New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) is offering Independent Project grants of up to $10,000 for architecture, design, and historic preservation professionals. NYSCA's 2020 program in Architecture + Design is offered to individuals or teams to creatively explore or research an issue or problem in the fields of architecture, landscape architecture, community centered design, historic preservation, fashion, graphic, industrial, and/or interior design that advances that field and contributes to a broader understanding of design.
The program seeks projects that are innovative in nature and emphasize artistry and design excellence – design must be at the core of any project. Projects may lead to the creation of design prototypes, provide new ideas in community design, research a topic in design or architectural history, or engage in critical or theoretical analyses.
Applicants must be professionals in their related architecture, design and/or historic preservation field. Architectural and design historians qualify. Applicants must be current New York State residents and must be able to provide two documents as proof of residency.
The deadline for applications is March 11, 2019.
