Ambassador's Grant

Ambassadors for Storytellers of Canada – Conteurs du Canada Travel Grant *As funds are available

**A Note to Members Regarding the Ambassador's Grant for this year:

The 2016-2017 budget this year, does not allow SC-CC to directly offer international travel grants to members. So we are researching other avenues of financial support through Canada Council. 

One is a professional artist’s own application for an Arts Abroad grant. You will first have to create an account in the new portal of Canada Council and register your profile for validation at least 30 days before you want to apply, but there is no application deadline. Votre admissibilité à cette composante est déterminée en fonction de votre profil créé sur le portail et approuvé par le Conseil. http://conseildesarts.ca/financement/subventions/rayonner-a-l-international

First-time applicants are strongly encouraged to speak to a Program Officer before applying.You will find detailed information on the Canada Council page here:
