For Artists, Nurses and Gentlewomen

How we help artists

The Eaton Fund can provide grants to help male or female artists and art students.

The Trustees have made grants to fund art materials, items of equipment and exhibition costs, such as framing.

Grants are restricted to artists and students working in the visual arts fields, including painting, sculpture, ceramics, print-making, photograpy, film-making and installations. We do not give grants for the performing arts.

Applicants should note that we can only make grants to artists or students who live in England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland. Students must be UK citizens studying in England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland.

Details of our grant application process and application form are here. Please note, you must also send a letter from a referee who knows your work (typically a tutor, a curator or gallery official), and a list (with prices) of the art materials or equipment you intend to buy.

Please see our eligibility page for further information.
