CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: 2015 Fellowships for MFA and PhD Students

CAA has begun accepting applications from MFA and PhD students for its Professional-Development Fellowships in the Visual Arts and Art History. For the current cycle, CAA will award grants of $10,000 each to outstanding students who will receive their MFA and PhD degrees in calendar year 2016.

Fellows also receive a free one-year CAA membership and complimentary registration to the 104th Annual Conference in Washington, DC taking place February 36, 2016. Honorable mentions, given at the discretion of the jury, earn a free one-year CAA membership and complimentary conference registration.

CAA’s fellowship program supports promising artists and art historians who are enrolled in MFA and PhD programs nationwide. Awards are intended to help the students with various aspects of their work, whether it be for job-search expenses or purchasing materials for the studio. CAA believes a grant of this kind, without contingencies, can best facilitate the transition between graduate studies and professional careers.

Please visit to submit applications to the 2015 MFA and PhD Fellowship programs. The deadline for applications for the PhD Fellowships is Friday, October 2, 2015 and Monday, November 16, 2015 for the MFA Fellowships. Awardees will be announced in January 2016.
