The Virginia Commission for the Art’s 2022 Artist Fellowship applications are now open for the disciplines of works on paper and songwriting.

A limited number of Artist Fellowships in the amount of $5,000 will be awarded by the Commission to recognize the creative merit of individual Virginia artists and to support their pursuit of artistic excellence. The application deadline is October 3, 2022, at 5 p.m.

Artists who are legal Virginia residents at the application deadline and who plan to remain in the state for the coming year, are eligible to apply for 2022-2023 Artist Fellowship. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age. An individual may receive only one fellowship from the Commission within any four-year period.
