The Artist Fellowship Program provides competitive grants to encourage the continuing development of Connecticut artists. These grants provide support for artists to pursue new work and achieve specific creative and career goals.
There are three types of grants available under this program:
Artistic Excellence grants: $5,000
Artist Fellowship grants: $3,000
Emerging Recognition grants: $1,000
Connecticut artists of all disciplines are eligible to apply for these grants as long as you are:
- at least 18 years of age;
- a citizen or a permanent legal resident of the United States;
- a full-time resident of Connecticut for a minimum of one year at the time of application.
During the grant/funding period, you must also remain a Connecticut resident and actively work on the creation of new work.
Please note: Fellowship awards are particularly competitive, and artists are encouraged to apply only when they have created a substantial body of recent work that can be presented professionally.
The application process for FY19 is now closed.
