Illinois Arts Council Calls For Artists Fellowship Applications
Fellowship Grants Promote Excellence in the Arts Deadline September 1st, 2007

Chicago – Applications are now available for the Illinois Arts Council’s (IAC) Artists Fellowship Program. These highly competitive grants honor artists of exceptional talent and enable them to pursue their artistic goals. Fellowships are a fixed amount of $7,000. A limited number of Finalist awards will also be given. These $700 awards are intended to recognize additional applicants who demonstrate considerable talent. All Illinois residents are eligible and encouraged to apply.

The Artists Fellowship Program operates on a two-year rotating cycle. This year, applications for choreography, crafts, ethnic and folk arts, media arts, new performance forms, prose, and scriptworks will be accepted. The primary factor on which applications will be judged is quality of submitted work.

“We are committed to pursuing and rewarding excellence,” says Terry A. Scrogum, IAC Executive Director. “The Artists Fellowship Program helps to support a robust creative landscape in Illinois.”
 
The deadline for application to the FY08 Artists Fellowship Program is September 1, 2007. Guidelines and application materials are available from the Illinois Arts Council website: www.state.il.us/agency/iac .
