Applications are now being accepted for WiVLA's 2016 Educational and Cultural Opportunity awards. Two $1,000 awards will be given—one to an artist and one to a writer. All individuals who have been dues-paying members for two consecutive years are encouraged to apply. (Previous winners are ineligible.) Applications will be reviewed for consistency with WiVLA's mission and goals by a committee that includes previous ECO Fund award recipients. This year's lucky members will be drawn from the pool of qualified applicants at the April 19, 2016 meeting. The application form is available here.

Completed applications must be postmarked by APRIL 9, 2016. E-mail your application to eco@wivla.org, or mail the application (postmarked by April 9th) to:

WiVLA ECO Fund Award
PO BOX 130406
Houston, TX 77219-0406

Previous winners have used the award to attend classes and workshops, purchase equipment, improve their workspace, install community art, research books, travel, and more. The award has made a significant difference in the artistic lives of all the past winners. Don't miss the chance to participate in the 2016 ECO Fund awards.
