Fellowships recognize and reward the artistic achievements of South Carolina’s exceptional individual artists.

Fellowship awards of $5,000 are made through a highly competitive, anonymous process and are based on artistic excellence only. The fellowship awards bring recognition that may open doors to other resources and employment opportunities. (There is a long list of accomplished fellowship recipients below.)

Applications are now open for FY2021. The disciplines in the rotation are:

  • Prose
  • Poetry
  • Dance: Choreography
  • Dance: Performance

Each category will have one recipient if enough applications are received.
