Grants are exclusive to female creative business owners in the worlds of design, fashion, music, and the arts. To be eligible, applicants must identify as female, US residents, that are or will be 18 years or older by the close of the submission window. Unfortunately we are currently unable to accept other international applications.

  • Demonstrates creativity + innovation in the specific field (30%)

  • Demonstrates business acumen + forward planning (30%)

  • Demonstrates financial need (30%)

  • Proposed timing, work plan, and budget are clear, detailed, and achievable within the next 12 months (10%)
