Our Next Grants

The Luminous Endowment is now ready to receive applications for our next round of grants. Applications are open to anyone in the world, and will be received until May 31, 2015. 

Some things to keep in mind...

– These are not awards. You submit past work only to show our panel of judges what you can do. The grants though are for an ongoing on planned project and are based on the merits of that project as described in your application. 

– Please read carefully. Applications submitted to the wrong category will be rejected. Applications that don't describe use of proceeds will be rejected. We are unable to enter into discussions regarding rejected applications. We try and be as fair as possible, but our available time is limited.
