Grant Requirements: MN/NYC Film and Video Grant Programs

Application Process:  Once you have taken the eligibility quiz and reviewed the Policies and Priorities of the program, you may submit an application online or mail/deliver it to the Foundation. Either go to the Apply page and setup a login name and password if you are applying online or download the .pdf of the application. Informational workshops are offered by Jerome Foundation staff to answer questions and assist applicants in the preparation of their proposals. Attendance at one of these workshops is encouraged for applicants who wish to receive detailed information about the program or ask specific questions about their projects. Please note: The online application for Minnesota Film and Video is available as of May 24, 2013. The New York City Film and Video online application will be available by June 15, 2013. Until that time, please apply by mail using the .pdf guidelines.

Contact Foundation: The Foundation encourages applicants to contact Foundation staff to ask questions and to discuss potential applications.

Review Process: For the purpose of thoughtful review, the Foundation convenes an independent panel composed of film and video artists, curators, and programmers. The Foundation aims for diversity of opinion and training in the composition of the panel. In advance of their meeting, the panelists review all proposals. Panelists view sample works during the review meeting. The panel's recommendations are presented to the Foundation's Board of Directors, which authorizes grant awards.

Following the Jerome Directors' authorization of grants, applicants will be provided with the names of grantees and review panelists. Declined applicants are free to contact the Foundation office for panel feedback/comments. Declined applicants are eligible for reapplication one year after receipt of their declined application.
