The IEA Project Grant is a $1,250 award to be used to support the completion of a project, such as preparing for an exhibition or installation, or the creation and/or completion of a body of artwork.

Applicants must be IEA members in good standing whose primary medium is encaustic and who consider themselves mid-career, rather than emerging artists. To be considered for the IEA Project Grant, applicants must have an exhibition record and propose a specific project or body of work.

IEA has awarded two Project Grants for 2020.   Congratulations to Phyllis Bryce Ely and Bridget Benton.  Click on their names above to learn more about them and their plans for the Project Grant funds.

There is a limit of one IEA scholarship or grant per member in any two-year period. The recipient must agree to submit a written report and images to IEA within 30 days of the end of the grant period and must agree that IEA may use the report and images in their publications and communications to members. The chosen artists also must agree to maintain paid membership in IEA for a year after the grant period.
