Texas Folklife Apprenticeship Program

The Apprenticeship Program provides awards of $2,500 for experienced artists to train a new generation of emerging artists in a traditional craft, music, or art through face-to-face interactions over a period of several months. Past program participants have included cowboy bootmakers in Austin; custom saddlemakers in Alpine; as well as both Cajun and Conjunto accordionists from Groves and San Antonio, respectively.
