I heard many artists talking about the Knight Foundation Grant so I checked it out. The first process is a brief description and then you submit the on-line application. Then they review it and if the foundation is interested they ask you for a full proposal. It is a matching grant, which means that if you are awarded $10 they give you $5 and you have to get the rest to match. You have one year to match the funding and it cannot be from yourself. I applied about bringing an open studio just for encaustic works. We shall see.
