Asian Cultural Council Grants

he Asian Cultural Council's online application system is now open, and the deadline to apply will be December 1st. To apply to ACC, you must be an artist, an arts or humanities professional, a scholar, or a graduate/post-graduate student in a related field. Your country of permanent residence must be within Asia or the United States, and your proposed project must take place outside of your home country, also in either the United States or Asia.

Please note that our fellowship grants are process-oriented, not product-oriented. They are intended for exploration, not exhibition.

If you are applying as a group/collaborative, each team member should submit a separate individual application, referencing the names of the collaborator(s) in the project description.

The majority of ACC's grants are awarded after our May board meeting. Since we are unable to provide support retroactively, the project for which you are seeking funding should begin no earlier than June 1st of the year after you apply.
