Grants of up to $750 to Edmonton, Alberta nonprofits and individual artists, arts educators and arts and festival administrators for travel to conferences, to attend exhibitions, and for training, development, marketing, and presentation purposes.

Funding is available for reasonable round-trip travel for projects that benefit the Edmonton community. Funding is intended to enable artists to participate in professional and creative opportunities that do not exist locally, and yet are vital to the continued advancement and growth of Edmonton’s arts community.

Grants may be awarded to a maximum of $750 per traveller.

Applications are best submitted in advance of the travel dates, but can be accepted to a published deadline within 90 days following completion of travel.

- Organizations that receive CIP operating support from the City of Edmonton
- Food, lodging or other project costs

- Projects in support of formal education that would result in a diploma or degree.

Grants may be awarded:
-Normally to a maximum of $750 per traveler.
-Normally to an individual or organization once annually.
-To an individual or organization for travel to the same destination for the same project for a maximum of two consecutive years.

Applications will be considered 3 times per year: February 1, June 1, and October 1. When these dates fall on a weekend or holiday, the deadline moves to the next business day. Online applications open a month before the deadline.
