About

Administered by Mid Atlantic Arts, state fellowship programs provide funding for individual artists residing in Delaware and New Jersey to encourage and sustain these artists’ pursuit of artistic excellence. 

Individual artists must apply following the process outlined in the guidelines for their home state. At the annual deadline for these programs a limited number of disciplines are accepted. All applications to these competitive programs are evaluated through a peer panel review process.

Questions regarding State Fellowships should be directed to Mid Atlantic Arts staff at 410-539-6656 x101 or Fellowships@midatlanticarts.org

State Fellowships are made possible through support from the Delaware Division of the Arts and the New Jersey Council on the Arts.
