In the 2014 cycle, grants will be awarded in the categories of digital/electronic arts, crafts/sculpture, nonfiction literature, poetry, and printmaking/drawing/book arts.
In 2015, grants will be awarded in the categories of painting, including the Basil H. Alkazzi Award for Excellence in painting; fiction; interdisciplinary work; folk/traditional arts; and video/film. In the 2016 cycle, grants will be awarded in the categories of architecture/environment, structures/design, choreography, music/sound, photography, and playwriting/screenwriting.
