Jerome Hill Artist Fellowships support Minnesota and New York City-based artists across 8 artistic fields who generate new work that takes creative risks in expanding, questioning, experimenting with or re-imagining conventional artistic forms. This Fellowship supports artists who embrace their roles as part of a larger community of artists and citizens, and consciously work with a sense of service, whether aesthetic, social or both. Support is directed to artists who are at an early point in their careers in creating such work, generally in their 2nd–10th year as a generative artist.

The application is now open. The deadline is Wednesday, May 4, 2022 at 4 pm Central time/5 pm Eastern time.

Fellows receive $50,000 over two consecutive years ($25,000 each year) to support their time and expenses for the creation of new work, artistic development and/or professional artistic career development.

The Fellowships support a diverse range of early career artists, including but not limited to those of diverse cultures, races, ethnicities, genders, gender expressions, sexual identities, class, physical and mental abilities, generations, religions, countries of origin, languages and immigration statuses.

Artists apply to be reviewed by a panel in one of these artistic fields:

  • Dance
  • Film, Video and Digital Production
  • Literature
  • Music
  • Theater/Performance/Spoken Word
  • Visual Arts
  • Technology Centered Arts (new this application cycle)
  • Combined Artistic Fields (new this application cycle)

Within each field, the Foundation supports a wide range of aesthetics, forms, creative practices and lineages, and perspectives. The Foundation applauds experimentation and interdisciplinarity within each field. The application provides space for artists to share more specifically in their own words how they view their own work and their goals in creating it.
