The Tulsa Artist Fellowship (TAF) is currently accepting 2019 applications for its year-long visual and literary arts fellowship program in Tulsa, Oklahoma. TAF provides unrestricted awards of $20,000 and living and workspace in the Tulsa Arts District to provide artists with the time and space to create while enhancing the thriving Tulsa arts scene.
All fellowships are merit-based grants, not project grants, and fellows will be expected to integrate into the local community by participating in local programs, symposiums and more.
A selection panel and advisory committee consisting of art leaders and professionals throughout the country travel to Tulsa to make the fellowship selections. For each discipline category, visual and literary, up to 15 fellowships will be awarded based on the quality of entries.
Applications for the 2019 Tulsa Artist Fellowship are due on March 1, 2018. The fellowship will begin in January 2019.
