The Chicago-based Harpo Foundation is accepting applications for its Native American Fellowships at the Vermont Studio Center program, which supports the development of artists with the potential for intercultural dialogue. This Fellowship program was established in 2011, and each year, the Foundation awards two residency fellowships to Native American visual artists at the Vermont Studio Center, a historic artist colony located along the Gihon River in Johnson, Vermont. Each Fellow receives a one-month residency, which includes room and board, a private studio, and a $500 travel stipend.

Founded by artists in 1984, the Vermont Studio Center is the largest international artists’ and writers’ Residency Program in the United States, hosting 50 visual artists and writers each month from across the country and around the world. The Studio Center provides 4-12 week residencies on an historic 30 building campus along the Gihon River in Johnson, Vermont, a village in the heart of the northern Green Mountains.

Successful applications should demonstrate:

  • Strong artistic ability
  • An evolving practice this is at a pivotal moment in its development
  • A practice that engages a dialogue between the artist’s indigenous world and the surrounding culture


Application Process and Deadline

The annual application deadline is February 15, 2019. Artists must apply online.
