The Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation and the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts foster excellence in the arts and help cultivate a broader appreciation for the arts in society. One of the ways they accomplish this is to give away money to creative artists who qualify.
Since we still live in a capitalist society, this is delightful.
Eligible individual artists residing in Pennsylvania can apply for one non-matching Fellowship of $5,000 or $10,000. Applications are reviewed by jury and the deadline is August 3rd, 2009, which may as well be tomorrow.
Questions about the State Fellowships should be directed to 410-539-6656 x101, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
