Bisbee Foundation accepting grant applications

[Source: Shar Porier, Herald/Review] — The Bisbee Foundation has begun its 2008 grant cycle and is asking that area organizations, students and individuals file scholarship and grant applications by the deadline of April 1. Doug Dunn, member of the foundation’s board, said the grants are available to support Bisbee organizations or individuals in the arts or humanities or to assist in historic preservation. Funded programs must be open and accessible to local citizens. The grant categories include special projects, general operating support, technical assistance and mini-grants. Two $500 scholarships will be awarded this year. “The Dan Davies Scholarship will go to a student seeking a degree in the arts or humanities at an accredited college or university. The second scholarship, established in the memory of Bisbee artist John Heshmati, is to be used in the pursuit of a degree or a non-degree art study program,” Dunn said.
