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.
The Foundation provides financial support to museums and non-profit organizations for exhibitions, publications, and educational projects that promote greater awareness and understanding of printmaking as an artistic medium.
