MCAD Invites Applications for Jerome Foundation Fellowships for Emerging Artists

The Minneapolis College of Art and Design is accepting applications for the 2015-16 Jerome Foundation Fellowships for Emerging Artists.

Through the program, four grants of $10,000 each will be awarded to emerging Minnesota artists. Fellowship awards may be used to purchase materials, cover the production costs of artwork, and/or supplement living or travel costs. During the twelve-month fellowship year, each artist receives three studio visits from professional critics, access to technical assistance, a culminating exhibition at the MCAD Gallery, a catalog with a critical essay on each artist’s work, and the opportunity to partake in a public panel discussion.

Artists considered for these fellowships may work in a variety of visual art media, including both traditional and new media. The program is aimed at visual artists who can present their work in a gallery context. Eligible applicants must be in the early stages of their careers and have not yet attained professional acknowledgement commensurate with the quality of their work.

The 2018-19 fellowship application cycle will open on July 13 and close on September 14, 2018.
