Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Opportunity for Arkansas artists to be honored for artistic excellence and to develop their work and skills in eligible artistic fields. Eligible artists must have resided in Arkansas for at least a year at the time of submitting an application. The Funding Source's mission is to strengthen the arts locally by helping artists achieve standards of professional excellence.

Individual Artist Fellowships are unconditional, non-matching awards made directly to individual artists. Awarded annually, these fellowships recognize the artistic creative excellence of the recipient's work and enable the selected artists to devote more time and energy to creating their art and mastering their craft. 

For the fiscal year 2021 the categories are:

  • Literary Arts - Screenwriting
  • Performing Arts - Theater Director
  • Visual Arts - Painting, except for works on paper

In all categories, it is best to submit documentation materials that show a concentration rather than a range of work.
