The Anna Sosenko Assist Trust is always looking for deserving grant recipients.  Grant applications to the Trust are made available to select individuals, upon review of a Statement of Intent which must be submitted first.


Q: What is a Statement of Intent, and how do I submit it?


A: If you would like to be considered for an Anna Sosenko Assist Trust grant, you must submit a separate letter of intent via email to with “Statement of Intent by (your name)” on the Subject line. The letter should be no more than two (2) pages long and clearly outline your needs and purposes, as well as the anticipated outcomes, should you be awarded a grant.


Q: How and when will I know if I have been selected to continue with the application process?


A: Statements of Intent are reviewed frequently, and an Anna Sosenko Assist Trust Trustee will contact you for additional materials to be submitted via a Grant Application, only if your submission meets our requirements and is compatible with our stated objectives.


The high volume of submissions prevents us from contacting applicants whose work we are unable to support. We ask that you refrain from contacting us about your Statement of Intent and/or subsequent application.


Q: If I am invited to continue with the application process, what additional materials will I be expected to submit?


A: If you are invited to apply to the Anna Sosenko Assist Trust, you will be asked to submit by both email and a hard copy via regular mail the following:

  • Grant application
  • Supplemental Materials
  • Press clippings
  • Letters of recommendation

Please note that due to the high volume of submissions, we will not be able to return supplemental materials.
