Individual Artist Fellowship
About the Program
The Individual Artist Fellowship Program is currently on hiatus. As part of the Division’s strategic planning process, we are looking at ways to make the Fellowship Program more relevant, useful and vibrant for Florida’s individual artists. The Division remains committed to effectively serving and supporting Florida's individual artists. In the Division's new Strategic Plan, one of the four key issues addressed is the Value of the Impact of Florida Artists and Elevating their Role as Leaders. By reevaluating the Fellowship Program, we seek to improve the support and promotion of Florida artists and their work.
The Individual Artist Fellowship Program recognizes the creation of new artworks by individuals of exceptional talent and demonstrated ability. Fellowship awards support the general artistic and career advancement of the individual artist. For purposes of this program, a "professional creative artist" is defined as a person who creates, on an ongoing basis, original works of art within an artistic discipline, and is pursuing it as a means of livelihood or for the highest level of professional recognition.
