Applications to the Professional Development Grant program are open

The Professional Development Grant program is now accepting applications for activities taking place during the 2021 calendar year. Applicants can apply for up to $1,000  for projects that contribute to their professional development and enhance their careers in the arts. No activities which require travel outside of Manitoba will be considered and applicants must demonstrate through their proposal that they will be able to adhere to public health guidelines such as physical distancing.

Previously, grants were only awarded in fixed amounts however this is not presently the case. Applicants may request any amount up to $1,000 provided that the grant amount is no more than 50% of the total project expenses. Partial funding may be awarded.

Applications are accepted through the Winnipeg Arts Council’s GoSmart system. For more information including the complete guidelines and the link to apply, visit our Grants for Artists page.
