Grant Proposals - Draft - Arunan

I have three different grants that I'm working on:

a. The IFA (Indian Foundation for the Arts) -  http://www.indiaifa.org/

b. ScienceGallery.com - http://www.sciencegallery.com

c. location1.org - http://www.location1.org

For the IFA, I need to contact them and decide what they need from me and by when. There are no deadlines as such. Contact person: Sanjay Iyer [sanjay@indiaifa.org]. 

I'm working on getting a site up with details that they are asking for such as 'bio-data' which is kind of like a curriculum vitae, current art practice and a work plan for the project I am proposing. 

The sciencegallery website has a deadline coming up in April for their NANO show later this year [http://www.sciencegallery.com/nano]. I've downloaded the forms and working on defining and refining my proposal right now. 

The virtual residency was another option that I had in mind. It was a kind of novel way to do a residency. Out of the applicants, three artists geographically apart were chosen and the collaborative work they came up with were displayed at Location One in New York. [http://www.location1.org/location-one-virtual-residency-project/]. I think the deadline this year is on April 15th.
