GrantWatch ID#: 172653

Number of Grants:

Twelve grants are awarded each year.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Individual Support Grants are available to painters, sculptors and printmakers who have been engaged in a mature phase of their art for at least 20 years and who are currently in financial need. Financial need is based on household income.

The Foundation wishes to encourage artists who have dedicated their lives to developing their art, regardless of their level of commercial success.

Please note that these grants are available only to mature individual visual artists. The Foundation defines maturity in this case as having worked for 20 years or more in a mature phase of art. Maturity is based on a high level of intellectual, technical, and creative proficiency that has been maintained over time. It is not based on an applicant’s age but rather on the development of and commitment to an artist’s work and its progress over time. The Foundation relies on the visuals included with the application to provide evidence that an artist has been producing mature work for at least 20 years.

In addition to the maturity requirement, eligibility for an Individual Support grant is determined by the applicant’s current financial need. Each applicant must complete the financial disclosure section in full and must submit the appropriate financial documentation.

The Foundation’s grant programs are open to both US based and International artists. US citizenship or residency is not required.

Please note that applicants who have previously received an Individual Support Grant from this Foundation three times or more are no longer eligible to apply.

The Foundation does not consider requests for funding of educational purposes.

The Gottlieb Foundation does not fund organizations, educational institutions, students, graphic artists, or those working in crafts. The disciplines of photography, film, video, or related forms are not eligible unless the work directly involves, or can be interpreted as, painting or sculpture. The Foundation does not fund exhibitions, installations, or projects of any kind.
