SCArts Commission Grants Awards
S.C. Artists' Ventures Initiative is a broad-reaching project that is dedicated to improving conditions for South Carolina artists by helping them develop the knowledge and skills to build satisfying, sustainable careers. View the current guidelines >>>
All SCAC grant awards are contingent upon availability of funds, submission and approval of final reports, and compliance with program grant guidelines. Additional grants are awarded throughout the year.
Note to grantees: Notification of your award is provided through posting on this website, which you may consider official confirmation of your award until contract paperwork is issued. Contracts are issued throughout the year, with paperwork for full-year grants (July 1 to June 30) generally mailed in fall of the award year. If you need an award letter before it arrives with your contract paperwork, please contact your coordinator.
