Bill McLennan Masterpiece Study Program Microgrants

Microgrants are $500 grants for BC and Yukon First Nations artists who wish to further their art practice through research/study of BC and Yukon Indigenous art and artifacts. Grants are for virtual collections visits at our museum partners offering virtual visits, or for in-person attendance if travel to the museum is not required.

Microgrants are intended to cover minor costs associated with collections visits, including for example time, meals and/or materials associated with the visits.

Applications will be accepted on an ongoing basis and up to ten microgrants will be awarded in 2021.
