CCT: Artist Fellowship Program


Artist Fellowship Program

The Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD), Connecticut Office of the Arts (COA), and its Artist Fellowship Program encourage the continuing development of Connecticut artists. The program offers competitive grants of up to $10,000 to Connecticut artists and enables them to set aside time to pursue their work and achieve specific creative and career goals.

The deadline for the 2014 Artist Fellowship Program has passed.

UPDATE (on 9/16/14):  Unfortunately, the COA Arts Council meeting scheduled for September was canceled; therefore, the Artist Fellowship Program results will be reviewed at the next council meeting in October and released and posted on our website on Wednesday, October 22nd.   

We apologize for the delay and appreciate continued your patience.   

All applicants will be notified by email and the recipients will be posted on this webpage. Please check back at that time.
