Description:

Request a Grant Writer

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.

Number of Grants:

2 to 4

Estimated Size of Grant:

The Antarctic Artists and Writers Program does not provide funds; the financial amount of the NSF award is zero. The award consists of provision, without charge, of USAP field resources in Antarctica and/or the Southern Ocean. Successful projects will be provided with USAP logistical support needed to implement the proposed activity, as well as round-trip economy air tickets between the United States and the Southern Hemisphere.

Term of Contract:

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). Proposals will be considered for work aboard ship in the Southern Ocean beginning no sooner than seven months after the original proposal deadline.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

The Antarctic Artists and Writers Program is for citizens or permanent residents of the United States who have a substantial record of achievement in the arts and letters or who are in early career and demonstrate exceptional promise. Applicants must be 21 or older.

Individuals may apply directly or through their employing organizations.

Foreign nationals may apply only if they are permanent residents of the U.S.

Medical and dental care in the Antarctic is limited. Field participants must pass medical screenings in the six months prior to the planned deployment. Failure to meet medical and dental criteria results in disqualification for Antarctic travel, regardless of the merits of a particular proposal. NSF does not pay for examinations, follow-up visits, or remediation needed to pass the screenings.

The program does not support site installations or performances in Antarctica. The program also does not support short-term projects that are essentially journalistic in nature.

The program does not support site installations or performances in Antarctica.
