Now in its tenth year, the Windgate Fellowship Award continues to be one of the most prestigious and sought-after awards for emerging craft artists in America. Each year more than 120 universities from across the United States are invited to nominate two graduating seniors with exemplary skill to apply for a fellowship award of $15,000 to support a project that will further their careers and contribute to the advancement of the field. Ten fellowships are awarded each year.
The 2015 Windgate Fellowship award cycle is now open, applications are by invitation only. Each participating university can nominate up to two students per year.
If you work for an accredited institution with a strong art, craft or design program and are interested in participating, please contact Anna Helgeson, Grants and Office Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
University contacts for the 2015 Windgate Fellowship program must be selected by September 26, 2014. The deadline for the institution to nominate two students will be Friday, November 21, 2014. The deadline for student online applications is February 6, 2015. The 2015 Windgate Fellows will be announced in April, 2015.
