Grants and Scholarships

The Pentucket Arts Foundation awards $10,000 annually in grants and scholarships to the Pentucket community. 

The goal of the "Arts Connecting Community Public Art Grant" is to engage our community in the creative process as a way to foster connections and enrich lives. We are looking to provide seed money or funding for highly interactive, community-driven Fine and Performing Arts projects that will take place in Groveland, Merrimac and West Newbury and that appeal to the widest segment of the population of these three towns. Projects that take place outside of the Pentucket District will only be considered if they are specifically designed for participation by residents of our Tri-Town Region.

 

Application period is January 15 - April 15, with grant awards announced in May.
