GRANTS & AWARDS
The IFPDA Foundation provides various grants and awards throughout the year, benefiting many deserving institutions and organizations. Currently, the foundation offers Foundation Grants, the Book Award, Curatorial Internship grants, the Richard Hamilton Acquisition Prize, and the Jordan Schnitzer Award for Excellence in Printmaking.
Recognizing the importance of early career exposure to prints, the IFPDA Foundation aims to empower print curators to cultivate the next generation of scholars, curators, dealers, and specialists in the field of fine prints.
Each year, the IFPDA Foundation funds curatorial internships in museum print collections. Host institutions are awarded funding based on their ability to provide an intern with object-based experience in the collection under the guidance of one or more experienced print specialists.
Applications for 2020 are now closed.
