Fellowships deadline extended to Nov. 15!

The deadline to apply for South Carolina Arts Commission Fellowships has been extended to Nov. 15!

South Carolina artists working in poetry, prose, acting and playwriting are encouraged to apply for South Carolina Arts Commission Fellowships of $5,000. The award is unrestricted, meaning Fellows can use the funds for anything – professional development, travel, adding on to a studio, buying equipment, marketing, etc.

Fellowships recognize and reward the artistic achievements of South Carolina’s exceptional individual artists. Fellowship awards are made through a highly competitive, anonymous process by out-of-state panelists and are based on artistic excellence only. The awards bring recognition that may open doors to other resources and employment opportunities.

Fellowships are awarded in four disciplines each year.

Complete requirements, guidelines and the application are available online. Apply by Nov. 15, 2013.
