Baltimore, MD - May 19, 2014 - Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation announced today the immediate availability of 2015 New Jersey State Council on the Arts Individual Artist Fellowship guidelines and application. The funding categories available for 2015 are Crafts, Photography, and Playwriting.
To be eligible, an artist must work in one of the categories offered for 2015 and be a current New Jersey resident. Fellowships are awarded based on independent peer panel review of work samples submitted by applicants. The anonymous process is focused solely on artistic quality. The grants help artists to produce new work and advance their careers.
All applications must be submitted online. Applicants can go to http://www.artscouncil.nj.gov or click here for the link to the Individual Artist Fellowship application. Applicants who do not have access to a computer can visit any County Library in New Jersey for access to the Internet. Artists will need to upload work samples online and submit them with their application. Prospective applicants with specific questions regarding the online application process may contact Kimberly Steinle-Super at 410-539-6656 x101. Fellowship applications for 2015 categories must be submitted by 5:00 pm on July 15, 2014. If any special accommodations are required to file an application, please call Don Ehman at the New Jersey State Council on the Arts at 609-984-7023.
The New Jersey Individual Artist Fellowship program has been managed collaboratively by Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation and the New Jersey State Council on the Arts for 19 years. MAAF's similar partnership with the states of Maryland and Delaware minimizes Fellowship program administrative costs and maximizes efficacy.
