School for Advanced Research Native Artist Fellowships (deadline Jan. 15)

The Indian Arts Research Center (IARC) at the School for Advanced Research (SAR) offers three artist-in-residence fellowships annually to advance the work of mature and emerging Native artists. Each fellowship includes a monthly stipend, housing, studio space, supplies allowance, and travel reimbursement to and from SAR. These fellowships provide time for artists to explore new avenues of creativity, grapple with new ideas to further advance their work, and strengthen existing talents.

The fellowships support diverse creative disciplines and can include sculpture, performance, basketry, painting, printmaking, digital art, mixed media, photography, pottery, writing, and film. However each fellowship has specific applicant criteria as indicated below.

The IARC fellowships are funded through the generosity of Ronald and Susan Dubin, Rollin and Mary Ella King, and Eric and Barbara Dobkin.
