Rising Arts Leaders is bringing back the Virgil Yalong Quick Grants, named after Virgil Yalong, a longtime Rising Arts Leaders Steering Committee member, fearless arts advocate and champion of the arts in San Diego.
Rising Arts Leaders provides a limited number of competitive, professional development grants of up to $1,000 each to San Diego based emerging arts professionals and artists.
Come to our June Arts Hour where you can learn more about the Virgil Yalong Quick Grant and how to craft a stellar proposal. Shayla James, Chair and Katie Lorge, Co-Chair will give an overview of the Quick Grant process: guidelines, application materials, and reporting timeline. Then, Steering Committee member Nicole Verdes will share grant writing tips for attendees with any level of experience in writing proposals. Steering Committee members on the Quick Grant Committee will be ready to answer any questions you have about the grant and your proposals. We hope to see you there!
