The awards are accompanied by grants of $2,000, $10,000, and $15,000 that encourage artistic growth and sustained practice. 
2022 IAAs will recognize artists in the Literary Arts. Artistic categories rotate in a three-year cycle. Performing Arts applications will be accepted in Summer 2022; Visual/Media Arts applications will be accepted in Summer 2023. Artists may apply to the category they feel best represents their work.
