Project Grants


Due to the effects of the coronavirus we have sadly had to place the Project Grants on hold.

Please revisit this page in 2021.

The Ellis-Beauregard Foundation announces project grants for Maine artists. The Ellis-Beauregard Foundation offers five $5000 grants for projects completed within the grant year 2020. We are interested in supporting bold, compelling, risk taking work in and outside of the standard exhibition venue. Successful projects value unconventional approaches to art making, critical dialogue, collaboration and new models of community interface. Applications may address a distinct chapter, aspect or component of a larger project.

Interventions, site specific installations, publications, curatorial projects, web or media based work is all welcome. community engagement and collaboration in and outside the arts is encouraged.

A narrative, 10 work samples, resume, and budget are required. Failure to submit a final report will result in ineligibility for any further grants. Recipients must credit the Ellis-Beauregard Foundation in all public communication. Grant dollars will be delivered by December 2019 for the grant year 2020. Grant monies are taxable. 

Please submit your application through or via the Submit button below. Deadline is November 15, 2019.

If you have any further questions please contact Donna McNeil at 207-594-5825 or We are here to help.
