The Asian Cultural Council (ACC) is a foundation supporting cultural exchange in the visual and performing arts between the United States and the countries of Asia.
The main focus of the ACC’s grants programme is to provide individual fellowship awards to artists, scholars, students and specialists from Asia undertaking research, study, travel and creative work in the United States.
The ACC also awards a small number of grants in support of regional exchange activities in Asia.
The council not only awards individual fellowship grants, but also devotes special attention to arranging programmes tailored specifically to the needs and professional objectives of each grantee.
Staff will advise on cultural resources and activities, prepare travel itineraries, arrange meetings with arts specialists, recommend appropriate academic programmes and research affiliations and encourage grantees to explore interdisciplinary relationships in the arts in both Asian and American contexts.

Application deadline is 1 February 2003.
