 +What are some of the areas that the Deming Fund will not award?  The fund focuses primarily on writers and artists who are residents of Canada and the United States. They do not consider awards for any type of film work, music or performance-centered projects, scripts, or any works that are (or are going to be) self-published. They almost never award funds to groups and they also will not reach out to provide emergency funds to people in need. They also do not provide awards meant to assist with education financing. Applicants may win more than one award but if you have won a grant in the past you must wait at least five years before applying again.
**The National League of American Pen Women** is a professional group of women artists whose purpose is to “serve their communities through the arts.” As part of their mission they award two grants. One is a “Grant for Mature Women” and provides $1000 to a woman over 35 years old for work in the categories of Arts, Letters or Music (depending on the year). There is also the Helen Trueheart Cox Art Scholarhip for native Americans. This award is given to a female between the ages of 18-25 who is a member of a Native American Tribe. Application requirements are spelled out on their website nlapw.org. They also provide some information about contests and other awards in the arts available from other organizations. **The National League of American Pen Women** is a professional group of women artists whose purpose is to “serve their communities through the arts.” As part of their mission they award two grants.
