Welcome to the North Carolina Arts Council's online grant application system, ARTS Grants Online (AGO).
Be sure to read the Arts Council's General Funding Policies and the grant guidelines before beginning your online application form.
All AGO users will create a Profile when they enter the system for the first time. Individual artists applying for an Artist Fellowship grant should choose "Individual" in their Profile. Be prepared to generate your own user name and password that will allow you future access to the system. Scroll to the bottom of this page to find the Create a New Profile link. Once your Profile is complete, go to Current Programs and Applications to find the menu of grant categories.
Log into AGO with your user name and password. If you are unable to log in, please call 919-807-6514 for assistance. Review the information in your profile. Once your profile is updated, click on Current Program and Applications to find the menu of grant applications.
AGO applications and upload features work best with the Mozilla Firefox browser. Click here to download FREE Mozilla Firefox3 Browser.
We advise that you craft your narrative text responses for grant application questions in a word processor before entering the information into the AGO text boxes using the character counts for each question. If you choose to compose answers directly in the application form, please remember to SAVE regularly to avoid losing your data.
