The Individual Artist Fellowship program annually awards to up to 18 creatives in six categories of grants that recognize their accomplishments as mid- and advanced-career creatives. The program traditionally had three categories but expanded in 2021, thanks to funding from the Windgate Foundation.
Fellowship grants are $5,000 each and are unconditional grants that require no matching funds and are made directly to individual creatives. The grants recognize creatives who live and work in Arkansas and who make an impact through their creative works. The grant does not fund a specific project but allows creatives the opportunity to devote more time and energy to creating and mastering their creative craft.
Fellowship applications open online Friday, Dec. 30, 2022 and close at 5 p.m. Friday, April 14, 2023. An independent panel of creatives will select recipients. Selected creatives will be recognized during a special reception and celebration in Fall 2023. All work submitted as part of the Fellowship grant program must have been created within the past five years.
DEADLINE: April 14, 2023
