Texas Women for the Arts Grants

Texas Women for the Arts (TWA), a program of the Texas Cultural Trust, is a statewide giving circle whose mission is to awaken and nurture the artist in every Texas child. Established in 2005, TWA unites the financial forces of Texas women in funding arts education programs throughout the state.

Grants are awarded on an annual basis, in the spring, and are selected following a rigorous review process. Applications for the 2023-2024 year closed December 1st, and our 2024-2025 application cycle will open in October 2024.


  • Applicants must have a 501(c)(3) designation with the following exceptions: religious organizations and city/county/state historical agencies.
  • Current grantees are not eligible to apply after two (2) consecutive years of funding. Applicants may reapply after a waiting period of one (1) year.
  • Applications must be sponsored by a current TWA member. Please note: The Texas Cultural Trust does not assign sponsors. It is the applicant’s responsibility to identify and solicit a TWA member to sponsor their application.
  • To be eligible for consideration, the program for which applicants are seeking funding must reflect the mission of TWA: To awaken and nurture the artist in every Texas child.
