VCCA Receives NEA Grant
The National Endowment for the Arts has awarded a $15,000 grant to support month-long residencies for writers attending the VCCA for the first time. Applicants will be reviewed according to the established juried selection process. The next deadline is September 15, 2008 for residencies between February and May 2009. Somewhere on the application, or in a cover letter, please indicate that you are applying for an NEA-funded residency. A fully funded, month-long residency is valued at approximately $5,000.
