The 2018 CAA Professional Development Fellowships for Graduate Students are now open for applications. The fellowship program supports promising artists, designers, craftspersons, historians, curators, and critics who are enrolled in MFA, PhD, and other terminal degree programs internationally.
Fellows are honored with $10,000 grants to help them with various aspects of their work, whether 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.
PhD Fellowships: Monday, October 1, 2018
MFA Fellowships: Friday, November 16, 2018.
One award will be presented to a practitioner—an artist, designer, and/or craftsperson—and one award will be presented to an art, architecture, and/or design historian, curator, or critic. Fellows also receive a complimentary one-year CAA membership and registration to the Annual Conference in New York, February 13-16, 2019. Honorable mentions, given at the discretion of the jury, also earn a free one-year CAA membership and complimentary conference registration.
CAA initiated its fellowship program in 1993 to help student artists and art historians bridge the gap between their graduate studies and professional careers. Past recipients include artists and thinkers such as Marin Sarve-Tarr(2015), Maggie Cao (2014), La Toya Ruby Frasier (2006), Risë Wilson (2002), Chitra Ganesh (2001), Miguel Luciano (2000), Miwon Kwon (1996), and Blake Stimson (1995), among many others.
