Fellowship Opportunities at VCCA

We are putting out a call for artists! The Steven Petrow LGBTQ Fellowship and the Alonzo Davis Endowment for Fellowships are currently open for applicants. The deadline for both is January 15, 2018. To submit an application, please visit our Apply page.

The Steven Petrow LGBTQ Fellowship (est. 2016) is open to applicants working in all genres (creative writers, visual artists, and composers). The fellowship consists of a fully-funded two-week residency at VCCA. To be eligible, applicants must self-identify as LGBTQ.

VCCA Fellow Steven Petrow is a journalist and book author whose own work about LGBTQ issues found much support at VCCA over the past decade.

The Alonzo Davis Endowment for Fellowships annually supports two fully-funded residencies of two weeks each for highly accomplished American visual artists, creative writers, and composers of African or Latinx descent. For this Fellowship, the application deadline of January 15, 2018 is for residencies to take place between June 1, 2018 and May 31, 2019.

Alonzo Davis came to VCCA for the first time in 1995 through a special initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts. He quickly became an active member of the VCCA community, joining the Board of Directors in 2004. Since its inception the Alonzo Davis Endowment for Fellowships has supported 11 artists.
