We’re excited to announce that Mass Cultural Council is now accepting 2019 Artist Fellowship applications in the categories of Film & Video, Music Composition, and Photography. Deadline: Monday, January 28, 2019.
The Artist Fellowships are unrestricted, anonymously judged, competitive grants of $15,000 and finalist awards of $1,000, in recognition of artistic excellence.
Who should apply for an Artist Fellowship? Massachusetts artists creating original work who meet eligibility requirements (see guidelines) are encouraged to apply. Read our tips on applying for an Artist Fellowship.
We know artists work in ways that are not always easily categorized. If you have any questions where your work might best fit in the program, don’t hesitate to ask us.

There are two deadlines per fiscal year, divided by discipline, and this is the second deadline. Applications in Crafts, Dramatic Writing, and Sculpture/Installation/New Genres were accepted earlier in 2018, with a October 1, 2018 deadline. Grant results in those categories will be announced by February 2019.
