Artist Development Fellowship


2019 Artist Development Fellow George Liu ’20. Cloth Study: Acrylic, canvas, cloth, and sand. 18in x 24in
Artist Development Fellowships (ADF) support the artistic development of promising and/or accomplished student artists who, it is hoped, will one day look back on this opportunity and mark it as a significant contributor to their creative development.

ADFs are awarded annually by the Council on the Arts, a standing committee of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences.

Fellowships are open to all undergraduates currently enrolled in Harvard College. Applicants must undertake projects that will be completed prior to graduation. (The Council may occasionally make exceptions for projects that are to be undertaken immediately following graduation, although current undergraduates will be given priority consideration.)

Meet the 2019 Artist Development Fellows.

Upcoming Info Session:

Monday, December 9, 5-6pm Office for the Arts Common Room (74 Mt. Auburn Street) Pizza will be served!  The info session will provide a review of guidelines, advice on the application process, and a chance to hear from past Fellows about their experience.
