apply for a2a support
Arms 2 Artisans supports qualified post-9/11 Veterans who are interested in pursuing their passions as artists or creators. We offer paid internships, apprenticeships, workshops and/or certificate programs focused on the artistic or creative endeavor that stirs each Veteran’s passion. A2A also offers mentorships, guidance, entrepreneurial and peer-to-peer support to help the Veteran on his or her path. We have an established network of Veteran run companies and programs in various artisanal/creative areas, including brewing, distilling, cigar rolling, writing, poetry and many more. If we don’t have a connection that suits you, there’s a really good chance we can find one. We’ll learn more about your needs and desires as we go through your application and counseling process.
A2A considers all types of Veterans for assistance, but we will only consider those that served in the military after September 2001. Although Veterans with Honorable Discharges are preferred, we may consider other types of discharges on a case-by-case basis.
In order to apply for assistance, you must complete and submit the A2A Application below. Upon receipt and review of your completed application, we will request a copy of your DD-214, as well as any additional information that we may need.
Once we have received all required documents, we will do our best to let you know if you have been approved within 14 calendar days.
