McKnight Artist Fellowships

Celebrating
Working Artists
SINCE 1981

Support for individual artists preceded the inception of The McKnight Foundation’s Arts program. We believe that the arts cannot flourish or enhance community life without the ideas, energy, and drive of individual artists, and that artists cannot make these contributions without unfettered creative time. A fellowship can help an artist set aside periods of time for study, reflection, experimentation, and exploration; take advantage of an opportunity; or work on a new project.

Interested in applying?
