South Carolina Arts Commission

All Grants

Grants are one of the four ways the S.C. Arts Commission accomplishes its work in arts education and artist and community arts development.



The South Carolina Arts Commission is honored to have been named 2019 Public Sector Grantmaker of the Year by the 3,000-member Grant Professionals Association.

Looking for…
Statewide Operating Support (SWO) grants?

That grant category has been phased out. SWO grantees were reassigned to our other operating support grant categories: General Operating Support and Operating Support for Small Organizations.

Teacher Standards Implementation (TSI) grants or Arts Teacher Support grants?

Those categories were replaced by School Arts Support Grants.
