    This registration is to signal intent to apply for the annual grant program for education in the ceramics arts.  Register here online and then send supporting documentation via email or mail.  

    The Armstrong Grant was established in memory of our late distinguished member, Bill Armstrong. Bill was instrumental in teaching many people about pottery and was always interesting in experimenting, learning more, and helping others.

    In this spirit, New Mexico Potters gives an annual grant to assist with a ceramics education program or a ceramic art project.

    The annual award is up to $1000, to be determined by the Board, based upon individual needs. Proposals for lesser amounts would also be welcome for consideration.

    Use of funds: Funds may be used for purchasing supplies or equipment, contracting with a visiting artist, marketing/publicizing a special program or project or other activities directly related to ceramic art education.

    Eligibility: 501(c)3 organizations and educational institutions located in New Mexico are eligible to apply.


    1.  Fill in this grant registration with name, address, phone, email and brief description of the project. 

    2.  Provide additional support documentation via email or paper mail.  Support documentation should include:  

    • Applicant’s name, address, phone, email
    • A description of the project or program, including dates, location, budget, etc.
    • A description of who will benefit from this project/program and what are the anticipated outcomes.
    • A description of the organization applying for the grant

    • Provide a simple income/expense statement for the project/program

    • Provide documentation to show funds were used as described in the proposal
    • Provide pictures for website and publicity purposes
    • Give funding credit to NMPCA in newsletter, press release, website or other forms of communication.

    Deadline: Since 2020 is an unusual year, and the plans of many organizations are uncertain in the wake of the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, applications for the 2021 Armstrong Grant will be accepted through summer of 2021 for an award in the fall of 2021.
