Grants Since 1996, SPAM has given grants annually for
research and writing on the arts. Our grants are a bit unusual:
we support individuals more often than institutions, writers
even though we are not a publication, and work in areas we
feel need more attention, such as lesser-known modernists
or a new perspective on familiar modernists. We seek projects
that make innovative arguments and original research accessible
to as wide a public as possible.

Development Grants With a new line of grants SPAM is supporting
course development in the history of public and private support
for the arts in the United States. The grants are intended
to expand college and university teaching of the history of
support for the arts.

Grants SPAM occasionally makes other grants. In 2001 we
supported the launch of ArtistCares, a grassroots response
to September 11th that worked with artists to give healing
workshops for communities in times of crisis.
