The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Fellowship Program

Permalink   

 

The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Fellowship Program is a vital source of funding for the visual arts and art history in Virginia. VMFA is committed to supporting professional artists as well as art and art history students who demonstrate exceptional creative ability in their chosen discipline and, as such, has awarded more than $5 million in Fellowships to Virginians.

The Fellowship Program was established in 1940 through a generous contribution made by the late John Lee Pratt of Fredericksburg. 2015 marks the 75th anniversary! Offered through VMFA Statewide, Fellowships are still largely funded through the Pratt endowment, supplemented by annual gifts from the Lettie Pate Whitehead Foundation and the J. Warwick McClintic Jr. Scholarship Fund.

Awards are offered to professional artists, full-time undergraduate students in the visual arts (including college-bound high school seniors), and full-time graduate students in the visual arts or art history. 

Applicants must be citizens or permanent residents of the USA as well as current legal residents of Virginia. 

Award amounts:

Professional artists - $8000

Graduate students - $6000

Undergraduate students - $4000

No application fee; Application deadline is 5pm,  Nov 6, 2015.
