In-kind grants to USA individual artists and writers to carry out projects that will increase the public’s appreciation and understanding of the Antarctic region. Larger projects must contact the funding source before applying. In addition to operational support, this program provides round-trip economy flight tickets between the USA and the Southern hemisphere.
U.S. Antarctic Program infrastructure consists of three year-round stations and numerous austral-summer research camps in Antarctica, research ships in the Southern Ocean, and surface and air transportation. These assets support the projects undertaken by the artists and writers.
The Antarctic Artists and Writers Program was established to facilitate writing and artistic projects designed to increase the public’s understanding and appreciation of the Antarctic and human endeavors on the southernmost continent. The Artist and Writers Program gives priority to projects that focus on interpreting and representing the scientific activities being conducted in the unique Antarctic region. Proposed projects must target audiences in the U.S. and be distributed/exhibited in the U.S.

Proposals will be considered for field support in Antarctica beginning no sooner than a year after the proposal deadline in which funding was requested (i.e., if applying to the July 2019 deadline, requests for field support would be considered no sooner than July 2020).
