Apply for a Fellowship

MacDowell has decided to suspend the September 2020 and January 2021 application deadlines. Like many residency programs, MacDowell temporarily closed its program due to the corona virus pandemic. Upon reopening, MacDowell is committed to providing time and space to those artists whose residencies were cancelled or postponed due to our closure. We look forward to opening our doors and welcoming artists back to MacDowell in the coming months.

About 300 artists in seven disciplines are awarded fellowships each year and the sole criterion for acceptance is artistic excellence. There are no residency fees. Travel grants as well as need-based stipends are available to open the residency experience to the broadest possible community of artists. Artists with professional standing in their fields, as well as emerging artists, are eligible to apply. MacDowell encourages artists from all backgrounds and all countries in the following disciplines: architecture, film/video arts, interdisciplinary arts, literature, music composition, theatre, and visual arts.
