Fellowships for actors and writers of plays, poetry and prose

Application deadline is Nov. 1, 2013.

The South Carolina Arts Commission is accepting applications for the next round of Individual Artist Fellowships. S.C. artists working in prose, poetry, acting and playwriting are invited to apply for the 2015 awards. Each Fellow receives $5,000.

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. The deadline to apply is Nov. 1, 2013.
