New York Foundation for the Arts Accepting Applications for 2018 Artists' Fellowships

For the past thirty-one years, the New York Foundation for the Arts has awarded Artists' Fellowships to artists living in New York State and/or Indian Nations located in New York State. In 2017, NYFA awarded ninety-two grants to ninety-five awardees and three collaborations totaling $640,000.

The unrestricted $7,000 fellowships are intended to fund an artist's vision or voice, regardless of the level of his or her artistic development. NYFA is committed to supporting artists from diverse cultural backgrounds at all stages of their professional career.

In 2018, grants will be awarded in the categories of fiction, folk traditional arts, interdisciplinary work, painting, and video/film.

Applicants must be at least 25 years old at the time of the application deadline (January 24, 2018) and must also be a resident of New York State and/or one of the Indian Nations located in New York State for at least two years prior to that date. Applications will not be considered from graduate or undergraduate students enrolled in any degree program at the time of the application deadline. Recipients of an NYFA Fellowship award in the past five years are not eligible to re-apply.

For complete program guidelines, an FAQ, the online application, and an informational video for applicants, see the NYFA website.
