The Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation provides financial grants to art students and artists in the early or developmental stage of their career.

Important: The Foundation does not accept applications from commercial artists, graphic designers and illustrators; photographers; cartoonists; animation artists; video artists, filmmakers and digital artists; craft-makers; artists who work in the decorative arts; or any artist whose work falls primarily into these categories. The Foundation does not provide funding for the pursuit of abstract or non-objective art. Applications may only be accessed through the Foundation's web site.
