Every year, ArtsWave offers a special pool of grants for new or expanded programming aimed at engaging young professionals. Because one of the core goals of our arts sector is to deepen the roots of Greater Cincinnati residents, it is vital that our arts strive to create the kind of community that makes our region a great place to live. The ArtsWave YP grants are a piece of that puzzle. ArtsWave is pleased to announce the Young Professionals Grant Program is now open for Fiscal Year 2020.

These grants are made possible by the donations of young professionals to the 2019 ArtsWave Community Campaign. Applications will be screened by a panel of members of the ArtsWave YP Committee. Applicant programs are expected to meet the following criteria:

• Participatory, social and recurring.
• Encourages personal investment in the organization and/or community.
• Targets young professionals.

Organizations interested in applying must complete a Letter of Intent by May 31, 2019. Up to ten organizations will be selected to complete a full application, due in mid-July. Grant awards will be made up to $25,000.
