Applications are accepted and considered throughout the year and are evaluated on an individual basis. Awards are given twice annually, May 31st and October 31st. The deadline for applications is the first day of either May or October for it to be considered for the corresponding grant period. Applicants selected by the trustees to receive awards will be required to submit additional information as well as a representative piece of the grantee’s work to be retained by the Stobart Foundation. This piece of work will be part of a collection of work that is ultimately to be used in a traveling exhibition of Stobart Foundation grant recipients.
