Additionally, fellows are given extra professional development opportunities including regular meetings with museum staff and outside professionals in addition to being able to participate in workshops and meet regularly with a mentor in their creative field.

Fellowships for Individual Artists and Collectives, Socially Engaged Art

Fellowships for Individual Artists and Collectives, Socially Engaged Art
Deadline: November 16

A Blade of Grass
New York, NY

We believe in the power of socially engaged artists to participate meaningfully in creating a more just, equitable, sustainable, joyful, and compassionate future. We know this means that artists must take time and care to develop relationships built on mutual trust, as well as work with diverse non-arts partners and communities. We understand there are no ready-made roadmaps or guaranteed outcomes for this type of work, and are committed to learning how artists navigate these processes and relationships.

Our fellowship program is meant to support courageous artists in creating exchanges, experiences, and structures that highlight seemingly intractable social problems, inspire audiences, and energize folks to participate in and sustain long-term social change work. This is hard and time-consuming organizational, intellectual, and emotional work.

For these reasons, beginning this year we are separating our financial support to fellows from our content and audience-building work for the field into two separate programs. This decision reflects our dual commitment to supporting artists who engage in high risk and high trust work that wouldn’t benefit from increased visibility of the process, as well as to producing high quality video, web, and print content, and experiences that push the discourse and expand audience for the field of socially engaged art.

We are committed to providing relatively unrestricted funding that incorporates a collaborative research component. Field research conducted by ABOG’s Director of Field Research replaces grant reporting written by the artist, and is grounded in the goals and areas of inquiry defined by the artist and the perspective of project participants.

Selected Fellows will receive:

  • $20,000 in minimally restricted support

  • Comprehensive written Field Research Reports that utilize action research methodology

  • Expenses Paid 2-day Orientation Retreat in NYC to engage a cohort of peer artists and ABOG staff and board (a requirement for the fellowship)

  • Ongoing invitations to networking events for all ABOG Fellows and Alumni twice annually (attendance voluntary)

  • Ongoing promotion of fellow’s projects through ABOG social media networks and website

In addition to direct artist support, another primary goal of ABOG is to make the “invisible” parts of socially engaged art visible. We do this through documentary films, publications, web content, and public programming.

Princeton Arts Fellowship 2019-2021

Princeton Arts Fellowship
Deadline: September 18

Princeton Arts Fellowships, funded in part by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, David E. Kelley Society of Fellows in the Arts, and the Maurice R. Greenberg Scholarship Fund, will be awarded to artists whose achievements have been recognized as demonstrating extraordinary promise in any area of artistic practice and teaching. Applicants should be early career composers, conductors, musicians, choreographers, visual artists, filmmakers, poets, novelists, playwrights, designers, directors and performance artists–this list is not meant to be exhaustive–who would find it beneficial to spend two years teaching and working in an artistically vibrant university community.

Princeton Arts Fellows spend two consecutive academic years (September 1st – July 1st) at Princeton University and formal teaching is expected. The normal work assignment will be to teach one course each semester subject to approval by the Dean of the Faculty, but fellows may be asked to take on an artistic assignment in lieu of a class, such as directing a play or creating a dance with students. Although the teaching load is light, our expectation is that Fellows will be full and active members of our community, committed to frequent and engaged interactions with students during the academic year.

An $81,000 a year stipend is provided. Fellowships are not intended to fund work leading to an advanced degree. One need not be a U.S. citizen to apply.  Holders of Ph.D. degrees from Princeton are not eligible to apply.

All applicants must submit a resume or curriculum vitae, a personal statement of 500 words about how you would hope to use the two years of the fellowship at this moment in your career, and contact information for three references. In addition, work samples are requested to be submitted online (i.e., writing sample, images of your work, video links to performances, etc.)

Applicants can only apply for the Princeton Arts Fellowship twice in a lifetime.

John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship

John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship
Deadline: September 17

Guggenheim Fellowships are intended for individuals who have already demonstrated exceptional capacity for productive scholarship or exceptional creative ability in the arts. Guggenheim Fellowships are grants to selected individuals made for a minimum of six months and a maximum of twelve months. Since the purpose of the Guggenheim Fellowship program is to help provide Fellows with blocks of time in which they can work with as much creative freedom as possible, grants are made freely. No special conditions attach to them, and Fellows may spend their grant funds in any manner they deem necessary to their work. The United States Internal Revenue Service, however, does require the Foundation to ask for reports from its Fellows at the end of their Fellowship terms.

The Foundation receives approximately 3,000 applications each year. Although no one who applies is guaranteed success in the competition, there is no prescreening: all applications are reviewed. Approximately 175 Fellowships are awarded each year.

During the rigorous selection process, applicants will first be pooled with others working in the same field, and examined by experts in that field: the work of artists will be reviewed by artists, that of scientists by scientists, that of historians by historians, and so on. The Foundation has a network of several hundred advisers, who either meet at the Foundation offices to look at applicants’ work, or receive application materials to read offsite. These advisers, all of whom are themselves former Guggenheim Fellows, then submit reports critiquing and ranking the applications in their respective fields. Their recommendations are then forwarded to and weighed by a Committee of Selection, which then determines the number of awards to be made in each area. Occasionally, no application in a given area is considered strong enough to merit a Fellowship.

The Committee of Selection then forwards its recommendations to the Board of Trustees for final approval. The successful candidates in the United States and Canada competition are announced in early April.

The Foundation understands advanced professionals to be those who as writers, scholars, or scientists have a significant record of publication, or as artists, playwrights, filmmakers, photographers, composers, or the like, have a significant record of exhibition or performance of their work.

The Foundation understands the performing arts to be those in which an individual interprets work created by others. Accordingly, the Foundation will provide Fellowships to composers but not conductors, singers, or instrumentalists; choreographers but not dancers; filmmakers, playwrights, and performance artists who create their own work but not actors or theater directors.

The amounts of grants vary, and the Foundation does not guarantee it will fully fund any project. Working with a fixed annual budget, the Foundation strives to allocate its funds as equitably as possible, taking into consideration the Fellows’ other resources and the purpose and scope of their plans. Members of the teaching profession receiving sabbatical leave on full or part salary are eligible for appointment, as are those holding other fellowships and appointments at research centers.

The Foundation only supports individuals. It does not make grants to institutions or organizations.

Catchlight Fellowship
Deadline: January 31

In contrast to the above fellowships which have a specific focus, the third 2018 Catchlight Fellowship is open to lens-based artists working on any social justice issue globally. This fellowship is aimed at the discovery and communication of issues not only of today, but of tomorrow — stories we don’t know about yet, or that we are revisiting through an entirely new lens. 

We will recognize a visual storyteller whose work drives change around a social issue they are passionate about and there are no issues or methodology that CatchLight prioritizes over another. Applicants will have chosen their own themes and issues, and proposed unique and compelling methods of creation and distribution. This Fellow will be partnered with The Pulitzer Center On Crisis Reporting and therefore will focus both on media and education as distribution for the work.

We invite applicants to interpret these themes broadly and encourage proposals from visual storytellers working in diverse creative mediums.

John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship
Deadline: September 19

The John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation provides fellowships for advanced professionals in all fields — including the natural sciences, social sciences, humanities, and creative arts — except the performing arts. To that end, the foundation awards approximately two hundred fellowships a year.

The fellowships are intended for individuals who have already demonstrated exceptional capacity for productive scholarship or exceptional creative ability in the arts. The program seeks to further the development of scholars and artists by helping them engage in research in any field of knowledge or artistic creation in any of the arts, under the freest possible conditions.

Fellowships provide grants to selected individuals over a period ranging between six and twelve months. Since the purpose of the program is to help provide fellows with blocks of time in which they can work with as much creative freedom as possible, fellows may spend their grant funds in any manner they deem necessary.

Support is only available to individuals. Fellowships are not available for the creation of residencies, curriculum development, or any type of educational program, nor are they available to support the development of websites or blogs.

The foundation understands the performing arts to be those in which an individual interprets work created by others. Accordingly, the foundation will provide fellowships to composers but not conductors, singers, or instrumentalists; choreographers but not dancers; filmmakers, playwrights, and performance artists who create their own work but not actors or theater directors.

Sustainable Arts Foundation Fellowship for Artists Who Are Parents

Sustainable Arts Foundation Fellowship for Artists Who Are Parents
Deadline: June 20

Gallery Aferro
Newark, NJ

Gallery Aferro believes that persistent dedication to craft and creative output is a formula for success as an artist, but sometimes life gets in the way of artistic productivity. This issue is particularly visible in the case of artists who are also parents. Many of our responsibilities and experiences define our time and creative output. Gallery Aferro is invested in uplifting artists to help them make art now, not later, and encouraging an environment where they can make work as large and complex as the vision of the artist. With the help of funding from the Sustainable Arts Foundation, Gallery Aferro offers this open call to all artists that are parents* and would like to continue their creative practice in an engaged and energized studio residency in downtown Newark, NJ. The studio will be provided to the parent-artist for 6 months at no cost and will come with a $1000 stipend given at the beginning of the 6-month rotation. The stipend and free studio will facilitate the parent-artist in coordinating effective time and energy to be spent in their studios.

*The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines a “Parent” simply as “a person who is a father or mother” -or- “a person who has a child”, and although that may be a nice, tidy definition, we think it oversimplifies the term. A “Parent” we think can be defined in many ways that are definitely not tied to gender binaries or “having” a child. This open call is open to anyone who has or shares legal guardianship over a person under the age of 18.

This open call opportunity is for 2 available slots, August 19th, 2017 – February 19th, 2018 & February 20th, 2018 – August 20th, 2018. The studio is a newly renovated work-only space with large steel shelving. It is a private studio but the building is regularly busy with artists and art enthusiasts interested in collaboration and idea sharing. This call is open to artists, local or not, who are working in any media.

The program provides six eligible artists working in all visual arts media a free private studio space accessible 24/7 and a fellowship (dependent on funding). The program runs for an eleven-month period from June to May. The studios are located on the lower level of our building at 92 Plymouth Street in Dumbo, Brooklyn and range in size from 250 to 300 square feet. The program does not provide living space.

Artists also have access to shared facilities that include: a state-of-the-art digital production lab, including a set of 27" iMac workstations professionally configured for video and graphics editing, calibrated video monitors, a 3D-capable HD projector, surround-sound monitor speakers, flatbed scanners, a wide-format photo printer, a color laser printer and wireless internet access; a fabrication shop including table saw, grinder, drill press, welding equipment, and hand tools; and a shared kitchen/lounge area. Our staff is on-hand to provide technical support and to respond to the studio needs of our resident artists.

Artists who are accepted into the program must be prepared to actively use their studio a minimum of 50 hours a month or they will lose it. Not all studios have windows. Artists will not be permitted to choose their studio. Please also note that due to the possibility of flooding in our basement studios, we strongly recommend that artists keep anything valuable off the floor at all times; therefore artists accustomed to working on the floor should think carefully about whether our studios will meet their needs.
