An update on the NC Artist Fellowship Program
Since 1980, the North Carolina Arts Council has awarded fellowships to artists in a variety of disciplines who have been selected through rigorous panel screening processes. The Arts Council supports artists in their development and the creation of new work because they play an essential role in the creative vitality of the state. Fellowship recipients receive $10,000 to purchase supplies and equipment, or pursue other artistic goals.
Who may apply
Artists residing in N.C. for at least one year prior to the deadline and at least 18 years old are eligible. They must be a U.S. citizen or holder of permanent resident alien status and must remain a N.C. resident and be physically present in the state during the grant period. Artists who received the fellowship grant in the past five years or are enrolled in an academic or degree-granting program at the time of application or during the grant period are not eligible.
