Eligibility
  • Others (see text field entitled "Additional Eligibility Criteria" for clarification)

Additional Eligibility Criteria
This fellowship is open to international applicants who are self-defined under-recognized* visual artists** over the age of 25 and not enrolled in a degree program at the time of the application deadline.

*To determine whether an artist is “under-recognized” the selection committee looks at an artist’s resume and overall presence in the field. If they see that the artist has already achieved a certain amount of prominence and recognition because they have (1) presented their work at venues such as major museums, art centers, international biennales, (2) received multiple notable awards and grants, (3) enjoy the representation of a prominent commercial gallery, they would likely not consider the applicant to be “under-recognized” by the field.

**Visual Artists (e.g., Painting, Illustration, Sculpture, Photography, Printmaking). Creative writing, dance, theater, film, digital/new media, performance art, and site specific installation art fall outside the purview of the HARPO Foundation. However, a proposal with an interdisciplinary approach may be considered as long as it has a strong visual art component.
