The next grant cycle will open on June 1, 2019.

For 2019, we reorganized the Rubys program schedule and this year ALL ARTISTIC CATEGORIES are represented in the grant cycle – Literary Arts, Media Arts, Performing Arts, and Visual Arts. Moving forward, there will be only one grant cycle per year. Artists may submit just one application across all categories.

The application link will open on June 1, 2019 with a deadline to apply of July 31, 2019.
