VCCA is currently accepting applications for residencies October 2016 - January 2017
Deadline to apply is May 15, 2016
When applying for a Special Program, please be sure to note which fellowship you are applying for on your application in the Financial Contribution section.
Columbus School for Girls Endowment
The Elizabeth Ireland Graves Foundation funds fellowships for artists who have been students or faculty at the Columbus School for Girls in Columbus, Ohio. The fund may also be used for other Fellows.
Jane Geuting Camp Fellowship
Established in memory of former VCCA President Jane Camp and endowed by her family and the James L. Camp Foundation, this fellowship provides residencies for outstanding artists.
Funded by VCCA Fellow Judi Komaki, this fellowship funds a two-week residency for a playwright, screenwriter or filmmaker whose work celebrates the behind-the-scenes story of an activist striving to make his or her vision of a more perfect world a reality. The work will capture the powerful and positive changes effected by inspiring social activists such as Martin Luther King, or engage a social issue in an uplifting way as Randy Shilts did with Harvey Milk. On your application, please note that you are applying for a Komaki Fellowship.
Since 2003, through its Creative Fellowships Program, the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation supports a fully funded one-month residency for artists each year from the mid-Atlantic states and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Currently, eligibility is for one artist from each of the following: New York, Maryland, Delaware, and West Virginia.
NEA Fellowship for Military Veterans
Thanks to a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, VCCA is offering fully funded residencies for five artists (writers, visual artists and/or comnposers) who are military veterans. Spanning two to four weeks between June and September 2016, these fellowships include a private room, board and an indivudual studio. Each artist will receive a $1,000 honorarium for travel and/or supplies.
