Important eligibility information about Access Copyright Foundation’s granting programs

Access Copyright Foundation wants to make sure its granting programs provide the widest and most equitable opportunity to those communities that the Foundation serves. That’s why the following eligibility restrictions are in place for grant recipients. 

  • Applicants may be awarded a maximum of two Foundation grants within a 24-month period;
  • Successful grant applicants must wait two years before applying for another grant in the same category. For example, an individual or organization that was awarded a Marian Hebb Research Grant for 2023 will be able to apply again in 2025.

Access Copyright Foundation strives to embody its values of excellence in publishing; professionalism; inquiry and engagement; imagination and creativity; curiosity and life-long learning; and the expression of the unique and diverse voices of Canadian creators, publishers, and arts organizations. In all aspects of its work including its leadership, communications, jury selection and adjudication, the Foundation aspires to uphold these values. Access Copyright Foundation believes that equity requires intention and action to counteract systemic racism, sexism, ableism, homophobia/heterosexism, and other oppressions.

In order to address historical and current inequities, the Foundation welcomes applications from creators with additional challenges in the creation or dissemination of their work including newcomers; people oppressed by racism; and those from a full spectrum of genders, sexual identities and abilities. The Foundation also welcomes applications from organizations representing these communities. The Foundation recognizes potential barriers such as geography and language.
