The Vermont Studio Center: Fellowships

17 September 2011

The Vermont Studio Center is now accepting applications for our October 3, 2011 fellowship award deadline and am asking you to share news of these awards with your friends and colleagues.

Last year, VSC awarded more than 150 fellowships and made additional grants to hundreds of artists and writers from around the world.

Educational Foundation of America Fellowships
Three merit-based fellowships available to emerging and mid-career artists and writers of color from the United States.

Rona Jaffe Foundation Fellowship
One fellowship for an emerging woman writer who will be a first-time resident at VSC. This award includes a stipend of $1250 to help cover expenses associated with taking the residency, including but not limited to travel, rent, childcare or to replace lost income.

Sustainable Arts Foundation Fellowship
One fellowship for an artist or writer who is raising young children; this award includes a $2,000 stipend to cover lost income, travel, child care, or other costs related to taking time away from the family. In addition to the VSC application form, applicants should submit a copy of a tax return (or other documentation) showing dependents under the age of 18.

John Pavlis Fellowships
Three awards for African-American visual artists and writers, with preference
given to current students and recent graduates of Fisk University, Spelman or
Morehouse Colleges.
