Travel Grant

CIP Travel grants have been postponed until further notice


CIP Travel Grants through the Edmonton Arts Council assist Edmonton residents active in the arts and festival communities with travel project costs to the benefit of both themselves and the citizens of Edmonton.

Funds are intended to support:

• Artists, artist collectives, arts and festival administrators, and arts educators. This includes contemporary and customary Indigenous (First Nation, Metis, Inuit, and Non-Status) artists, as well as artists practicing in all diverse art forms.

• Travel for the purposes of training, mentorship, residencies, professional development, presentation, performances, touring or marketing.

• Economical, efficient, round-trip or multi-destination travel leaving from and returning to Edmonton.

• Short-term, per-diem support for food, lodging, or other related project costs.

• Projects that benefit the applicant and the Edmonton community. 

Funds are not intended to support:

• Organizations that receive CIP Operating support from the City of Edmonton.

• Projects that primarily benefit a third party such as an employer.

• Projects in support of formal education that would result in a diploma or degree, or similar long-term certification programs.


Applicants must:  

• Be 18 years of age or older.
• Be a resident of Edmonton for at least one year prior to the application deadline.
• Be a Canadian citizen, Permanent Resident, or have a valid work permit.
• Not be in arrears with the City of Edmonton at of the time of application.
• Have no overdue Edmonton Arts Council final reports. 


If travel as described in the application does not take place, any funds must be returned to the Edmonton Arts Council.

Travel grant recipients must submit a final report within 90 days of your return to Edmonton, including proof that the travel occurred, a brief summary of the outcomes, and a short questionnaire.

Final reports help the EAC to evaluate our programs, learn about our community, and better support the development of our arts landscape.

Data collected from final reports may be used by the Edmonton Arts Council for promotion of and communication about the program, and for the ongoing review and improvement of the EAC's investment portfolio. Data will only be shared in aggregate form unless express permission is received from the applicant.

Overdue or incomplete reporting may impact your future eligibility to apply for EAC support.
