The MacDowell Colony has decided to suspend the April 15th deadline for the Fall 2020 residency season. Like many residency programs, MacDowell has made the difficult decision to temporarily close its program. Currently, our next deadline is Sept. 15th, for winter-spring 2021 residencies. Check our website often for up-to-date information about our next application deadline. In the meantime, we can be reached at email@example.com with questions.
About 300 artists in seven disciplines are awarded fellowships each year and the sole criterion for acceptance is artistic excellence. There are no residency fees. Travel grants as well as need-based stipends are available to open the residency experience to the broadest possible community of artists. Artists with professional standing in their fields, as well as emerging artists, are eligible to apply. MacDowell encourages artists from all backgrounds and all countries in the following disciplines: architecture, film/video arts, interdisciplinary arts, literature, music composition, theatre, and visual arts.
