The Asian Cultural Council supports transformative cultural exchange by awarding grants to artists, scholars, and arts and humanities professionals, as well as organizations and educational institutions from the United States and Asia for research, study, and creative work in the United States and Asia and within the countries of Asia.

Our online application form is available each year from September 1st to November 1st. Grants are generally awarded the following May, and since we are unable to provide support retroactively, we highly recommend that the project for which you are applying begin no earlier than June 1st.
