New York Foundation for the Arts presents

NYFA Artists' Fellowship Application and Information Seminar

Artists' Fellowships are $7,000 cash awards made to individual originating artists living and working in the state of New York for unrestricted use. Grants are awarded in 16 artistic disciplines, with applications accepted in eight categories each year. Since the awards began in 1985, NYFA has awarded over $22 million to over 3,688 artists. Peer review panels select approximately 100 Fellows each year, the goal being to buy recipients creative time to continue making work.

Each year NYFA offers free informational seminars across New York state to explain the Artists' Fellowships application process. Please see the list below to find a seminar near you and check nyfa.org/afp for updates and new locations. While the seminars are not mandatory, NYFA offers valuable information about the application and review process, and we encourage applicants to attend.

NYFA's online application will be posted in early September, please go to nyfa.org/afp to apply after September 9th.

The following categories will be reviewed during the 2009 – 2010 cycle:

  • Architecture/Environmental Structures
  • Choreography
  • Fiction
  • Music/Sound
  • Painting
  • Photography
  • Playwriting/Screenwriting
  • Video

This year NYFA will be conducting four enhanced applications seminars in addition to the general informational seminars we typically conduct. These enhanced seminars will be in Lake Placid, Ithaca, Buffalo, and Woodstock.
