Folk Arts Apprenticeship grants encourage cultural communities to pass on valued, traditional art forms by providing stipends to master folk artists who help apprentices develop important skills. The application process requires that each apprentice apply with a master artist as a team by providing artistic work samples, information about their shared artistic cultural backgrounds, and the planned scope of work.
