Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, VCCA is proud to offer a rotating selection of fully-funded fellowships at each of our three annual application deadlines (January 15, May 15, and October 15).

At each deadline, applicants will be considered for a VCCA residency and as many fully-funded fellowships for which they are eligible; only one application with a single $50 application fee is required per deadline.

Financial Aid: In addition to the fully-funded fellowships listed on this page, significant financial aid is available throughout the year. Through the support of our funders, all eligible applicants demonstrating financial need are considered for financial aid funding to help cover the cost of their residency.

Please Note: Fellowship details are subject to change as funding priorities shift and new opportunities become available.
