When is the application deadline?

Applications are considered on a first-come, first-served basis. Applications must be received eight weeks prior to the event, but we encourage you to send them in earlier. (Our fiscal year runs from July 1 through June 30. All applications for the next fiscal year received before May 1 will be held and processed shortly before July 1.) You may apply for a series of events all at once or separately throughout the year.
