Jambo Arts Grant Program

Jambo Arts is excited to offer a grant program for established and emerging artists. The Fellowship has been named for one of Jambo’s founders, Daryle Newman, whose commitment to cultivating artistic talents in the Marshall Islands has become an inspiration to all of us. Two awards in the amount of $200 will be given to support the creation of artwork and artistic talent including supply purchases, training, and/or other activities.  

Jambo Arts welcomes applications from Marshallese artists. Applications can be submitted in English or Marshallese via email at jambo.arts.rmi@gmail.com or dropped off to the Majuro Cooperative School Office. Applications must include most up-to-date contact information (i.e. phone, email, mailing address).

Application Deadline: November 4, 2016
