South Florida Cultural Consortium FellowshipSouth Florida Cultural Consortium
Fellowship for Visual and Media Artists

The South Florida Cultural Consortium is a partnership among the local arts agencies of Broward, Martin, Miami-Dade, Monroe and Palm Beach Counties. The Consortium’s Fellowship program is intended to nurture the artistic development of eligible visual and media artists who reside in one of these counties. Fellowships are not project-based; recipients may use the Fellowships according to their individual needs.


Fellowship Amounts

Fellowships of $15,000 and $7,500 are awarded to selected visual and media artists from Broward, Martin, Miami-Dade, Monroe and Palm Beach counties. No more than two fellowships of $7,500 may be awarded in each county.


All emerging, mid-career and established South Florida professional artists (those residing in Broward, Martin, Miami-Dade, Monroe or Palm Beach counties) are eligible to apply.
The Consortium defines a professional artist as a person who has created a recognized body of original works of art within an artistic discipline over a sustained period of time, and who is striving to achieve the highest level of professional recognition.

You may apply if you’re an artist serving as a volunteer on the boards, committees, task forces and/or similar advisory bodies of South Florida Cultural Consortium member agencies, so long as you’re not directly involved with the decision-making process for the Fellowship program.
