Fellowship Awards
These competitive awards recognize artists, at all stages of their careers, who are creating outstanding work in all media including painting/drawing, printmaking, photography, bookmaking, sculpture, installation, film/video, fibers, glass, metals, wood, and ceramics.

By increasing critical attention and exposure for recipients, the fellowships seek to foster their continued artistic and professional development.

Four $2,500 fellowships will be awarded, which may be used for any expenses that will assist in the development of new work and advance their artistic careers, e.g. equipment and supply purchases, studio rental, travel, etc.

Recipients will be featured in solo exhibitions presented concurrently at RAM’s Wustum Museum of Fine Arts. A color brochure will accompany the fellowship exhibitions.
