Mass Cultural Council believes artists are at the heart of our rich cultural life. To support artists and their creative work, we are now accepting 2022 Artist Fellowships applications in the categories of Drawing & Printmaking, Fiction/Creative Nonfiction, and Painting. Deadline: January 24, 2022.

The Artist Fellowships are unrestricted, anonymously-judged, competitive grants of $15,000 and finalist awards of $5,000, in recognition of exceptional creative work.

Please note that this year, we have a new grants management system. Learn how to register in our system.

We know artists work in ways that are not always easily categorized. If you have any questions where your work might best fit in the program, don’t hesitate to ask us.

There are two deadlines per fiscal year, divided by discipline, and this is the second deadline. Applications in Choreography, Poetry, and Traditional Arts were accepted earlier in 2021, with an October 25, 2021 deadline. We expect to announce grant decisions in those categories by February 2022.

Grant decisions for Drawing & Printmaking, Fiction/Creative Nonfiction, and Painting should be announced by June 2022.
