The Jeffrey Ahn, Jr. Fellowship is an annual award for young artists to produce extraordinary independent projects. In providing creative capital to young people, the Fellowship seeks to foster a positive educational and creative process that empowers them to be working artists for a summer, and to experience the freedom and the responsibility that such trust entails. Fellowship awards are merit-based and open to young artists from any background or country.
In 2019, the Jeffrey Ahn, Jr. Fellowship is open to applicants up to 21 years of age. The 2019 Fellow(s) will be selected by a jury of artists, curators, gallerists, and/or other professionals in the arts, and will be expected to complete a new work or series of works, as proposed in their Fellowship applications, on or before September 1, 2019. Preference will be given to projects in the fine arts, although performance and storytelling projects will be considered at jury discretion. Exceptionally, in a given year, more than one Fellowship may be awarded.
The Fellowship award will cover some or all expenses related directly to the production of the proposed artwork, including but not limited to: cost of materials, relevant museum or gallery admission, studio space, transport, rental of equipment or tools, and/or tuition for the acquisition of project-specific skills. Requests for exhibition funding are not eligible. The maximum awarded amount in 2019 is $10,000 and may be shared between more than one winner.
