RUBIN GRANTS

IN SUPPORT OF RESEARCH AND ART PROJECTS

We support artists, creatives, and scholars in the field of Himalayan art with a grants program that expands awareness and understanding of Himalayan art globally. 

  • The Rubin x Research grant program aims to expand research of Himalayan art with the goal of generating further knowledge, documentation, and general awareness of the field.

We support scholarship and research into Himalayan art in academic, educational, and exhibition contexts. Priority is given to projects that will result in publication(s), media projects, exhibitions, or are part of larger projects with a high degree of visibility. Rubin x Research grants offer support of $2,500 to $25,000. 

We do not fund conferences, the cost of producing publications, infrastructural projects, for-profit projects, or exclusively contemporary art projects in this grant category. 

Eligibility

Individuals such as scholars, academics or curators affiliated with not-for-profit organizations, as well as not-for-profit organizations. 

Deadlines 

Grants through this program are offered once yearly. The deadline for the first grant cycle is July 30, 2024. Grant proposals are reviewed by select Rubin staff and trustees, and additional art professionals/experts as needed and appropriate. The first round of grants will be awarded on or before September 15, 2024.
