NACF Artist Fellowships

In 2011/2012 NACF launched its first artist fellowships program for Native artists to promote further development of their talents. The 2011/2012 NACF Artist Fellowships honor Native artists that have made a significant impact in their discipline, are respected by their colleagues and in the greater arts field, and who are emerging as powerful voices in the arts. The $20,000 awards are unrestricted and through the fellowship, the artists are provided the opportunity for study, reflection, experimentation, and discovery.

Awards in 2011/2012 have been made in visual arts, filmmaking, music, dance, and literature.

Total allocation: $100,000
