The American-Scandinavian Foundation (ASF) has released guidelines for a new program to support Scandinavian folk arts and cultural traditions in the Upper Midwest (defined as North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan).

By supporting folk arts and traditional cultures in the Upper Midwest, ASF will recognize and celebrate the mastery of individual arts and practitioners, facilitate the cultivation of skills and understanding among younger generations, bring greater visibility to Scandinavian arts and traditions, and highlight the centrality of cultural expression to all of our lives.

Two categories of support will be available—fellowships for artists and/or scholars and grants for public programs and community projects.  All of our grants will encourage both the practice of folk arts and the presentation of those arts to public audiences.
