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 and the 2015 Artist Fellowship Program Guidelines are not available at this time.
