Serving as a grant panelist for the Indiana Arts Commission (IAC) is a means of making a valuable contribution to the arts in Indiana. All of our grant applications are reviewed individually by citizen panelists who then meet as a group in a recorded public panel meeting at the Indiana Government Center. At this convening, panelists discuss applications and finalize their individual scores for a specified group of applicants.
