Call Summary

Initiated in 2005, the Craft Research Fund has supported 223 projects in 39 states, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia. This program has elevated craft to a new discipline of study. Craft scholarship deeply impacts the lived experience of craft artists, researchers, curators, and graduate students, and the value of their work.

Applications are due October 21, 2022

Interested in applying? A free, virtual information session will be held on September 6 from 3 – 4 pm ET for the Artist Fellowship and September 8 from 3 – 4 pm ET for the Exhibition and Project Grants.
