The RJE Sprout Fund was established in 2021 to support artists across the nation with direct funds in order to provide financial means to projects that will be completed within the next 12 months.

All artists are encouraged to apply – formally trained, self-taught, and those whose creative work falls outside of traditional forms of art. Artists are also encouraged to apply for funds for projects that involve their communities such as art classes, therapy, outreach, and non-traditional projects.

An initial total of $50,000 will be awarded in June of 2021. Awards will continue to be administered throughout the calendar year on an ongoing basis.
Funds will be prioritized for artists working with marginalized and underserved audiences, topics, or subject matter.
