Ukraine/ 8.1 Support to artists and other creative workers  

8.1.2 Special artists funds

The Presidential Edict on State Support to Culture and Arts in Ukraine (1996 and 1998) granted 100 lifelong scholarships to outstanding artists less than 70 years of age. Since then, this number has increased to 200.

In October 2013, the base of grants was enlarged and extended to benefit young talent in music and visual arts, cinematography, literature, theatre, crafts and circus. The Presidential grants are the most prestigious form of state support for young artists. The general amount of such support envisaged for 2015 is UAH 8.577 million (see also chapter 4.2.1).

Every year, the government sets aside a certain amount of the budget to purchase works of art (see also chapter 8.1.1).
