A project may consist of one or more specific events or activities; it may be a part of an applicant's regular season or activities. Organizations may apply for any or all phases of a project, from its planning through its implementation.


This is a limited submission funding opportunity.  Only one application will be accepted from Harvard University across all categories with the exception of Media Arts. Those who wish to apply for a Media Arts grant may apply directly to NEA and do not need to submit an internal letter of interest but should contact the NEA to discuss their projects.
