DEADLINE: MacDowell Colony Fellowship

Event Date: 
September 15, 2020

The MacDowell Colony in Peterborough, NH provides time and space for artists to work on creative projects. The Colony has expanded its support for journalists by providing additional residencies and project funding of up to $2,500 in addition to financial aid for accepted artists engaged in long-form journalism projects.

A MacDowell Fellowship consists of exclusive use of a studio, accommodations and three prepared meals a day for two weeks to two months. There are no residency fees. Artists are responsible for materials and travel expenses; financial assistance is available to artists in residence based on need.

MacDowell encourages applications from artists representing the widest possible range of perspectives and demographics. The sole criterion for acceptance is artistic excellence.

There are three application deadlines per year: January 15 for the Summer period (June 1 – September 30); April 15 suspended for the Fall period (October 1 – January 31); and tentatively September 15 for the Winter-Spring period (February 1 – May 31).
