Fellowships: Writing in Vermont (Deadline June 15)

We are pleased to announce the availability of a new Fellowship opportunity at the Vermont Studio Center for 2007.

Recipients for the award will be selected at both the winter (deadline: February 15) and summer (deadline: June 15) Fellowship competitions.

New for 2007, the National Endowment for the Arts will sponsor four Fellowships this year for outstanding painters, sculptors, writers, photographers, or printmakers who demonstrate clear financial need (applicants must submit their most recent tax return or other information that indicates financial status).

Each Fellowship comes with a $1,500 stipend to cover direct residency expenses (travel, materials, shipping, etc.) or related expenses (child care, lost job revenue, rent, etc.). Awards will be based on a combination of the caliber of the work presented, and on demonstrated financial need.

To apply, go to http://www.vermontstudiocenter.org/apply.html and check the Special Fellowships box under Fees, VSC Grants, Fellowships and list the name of the award.

All applicants who provide the necessary information will be considered for all awards for which they are eligible.

Feel free to forward this e-mail to any artist you feel would be interested; we look forward to receiving your application.
