The Lewis Center for the Arts, in collaboration with other University departments, offers two artist fellowship opportunities. Both are designed to support artists, in all artistic disciplines, who demonstrate great promise.
The deadline for this cycle of fellowship applications has passed. All applicants will be notified of the results by early March 2015. Information on the progress of an application is not available before we announce the final decisions. Applications will reopen for the next fellowship application cycle in July 2015.
Funded in part by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation
Open to early-career artists whose achievements have been recognized as demonstrating extraordinary promise. Fellowships are for two academic years. Fellows will teach a course each semester or, in lieu of one course, may be requested to undertake an artistic assignment. A salary is provided.
Open to artists demonstrating “much more than ordinary intellectual and literary gifts.” Fellows are selected more “for promise than for performance.” Fellowships are for one academic year and provide the opportunity to pursue an independent project. No teaching is required. A stipend is provided.
