2022 USA Fellowship Application Resources

To further simplify our application process,we’ve hosted all application materials and resources in one place.

Our team understands the impact of this global pandemic on the livelihoods of artists while they navigate an unprecedented, declining economic landscape. As such, our process has been simplified and updated to consider the unexpected circumstances of the pandemic and the new financial realities faced by artists. Your application will be reviewed based on your whole body of work with an understanding that the pandemic has affected the production of new works. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to apply, and have compiled a complete list of these resources below for your reference throughout the application process.
