Mass Cultural Council believes that the work of individual artists is essential to a thriving society. We are excited to announce the launch of the Fiscal Year 2022 grant cycle of the Artist Fellowships to support Massachusetts artists and their exceptional creative work.
The Artist Fellowships are unrestricted, anonymously-judged awards. Grant decisions are based solely on the artistic quality and creative ability of the original work submitted. (Please note the Traditional Arts category is not anonymously-judged and has slightly different criteria and rules.)
This cycle, Mass Cultural Council is committing over $1 million to the Artist Fellowships, with the goal of doubling the artists funded through the program. The Fellowship grants are $15,000. Finalist awards will increase this year from $1,500 to $5,000.
Currently, we welcome Artist Fellowship applications in:
  • Choreography
  • Poetry
  • Traditional Arts
Info Session: October 5, 2021. Deadline: October 25, 2021
Beginning December 15, 2021 (expected), we will accept applications in:
  • Drawing & Printmaking
  • Fiction/Creative Nonfiction
  • Painting
Deadline: January 24, 2022
Learn more and apply now.
