The MacDowell Colony

MacDowell encourages applications from artists representing the widest possible range of perspectives and demographics. Emerging and established artists may apply in the following disciplines: architecture, film/video arts, interdisciplinary arts, literature, music composition, theatre, and visual arts. Applicants who are enrolled in undergraduate or graduate degree programs as of the date of application are ineligible for a residency and therefore cannot apply. Doctoral candidates who have finished all coursework may apply. A Fellowship consists of exclusive use of a private studio, accommodations, and three prepared meals a day for two weeks to two months.
