Week of April 18th: Fellowships, Pitch Contests and Professional Development Grants
Shoot your shot; your future self will thank you!
Hey there, creator!
Before we jump into the (20) funding opportunities for you to browse through this week, here’s a quick tip and a reminder.
Quick Tip: Sometimes important emails land in our spam folders, so check your spam inbox at least once a week. You never know if a funding organization may be reaching out to request more information from you or share that you won an award. Add an automated weekly reminder to your calendar, so you never miss this task.
Reminder: Join the Grants For Creators community on Wednesday, April 27, from 2:00-3:30 pm EST, for a live co-working session where we'll answer popular questions and brainstorm ways to improve our responses together. Throughout this session, you’ll be given writing prompts, have time to write your response, and get feedback from the group. Learn more and RSVP here.
