The Asian Cultural Council furthers international dialogue, understanding, and respect through cultural exchange activities in Asia and the United States to create a more harmonious and peaceful world. This is accomplished through fellowships and programs that support individual artists, scholars, and arts professionals.

The majority of ACC's grants are awarded directly to individual artists, scholars, and arts specialists. Organizations that will facilitate a cultural exchange opportunity for artists, scholars, or arts specialists may also apply on behalf of the individual project participants.
