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.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the Minneapolis College of Art and Design website.


Deadline: September 14, 2018
