Thank you to all who applied at our February 15th, 2016 fellowship deadline! The deadline has now passed. Due to the volume of applications we receive, fellowship applicants can expect to hear back from us within  8-12 weeks. 

VSC holds three annual fellowship deadlines: February 15th, June 15th, and October 1st. We also offer occasional special fellowships at other times. Fellowship applications open approximately 6 weeks in advance of each deadline; during those periods, our current fellowship offerings will be listed on this page. 

We accept general (non-fellowship) applications on a rolling basis year-round.


The Vermont Studio Center is proud to offer nearly $1.4 million annually in fellowships, grant assistance, and work-exchange to make residencies possible for approximately 700 artists and writers each year. In addition, there are other sources of support that are not available to VSC but to which you might apply to help fund your residency, such as your local and state arts councils, faculty enrichment grants for university employees, etc.

Here is a partial list of resources outside of the Studio Center’s fellowships, grants, and aid (in PDF format):

Funding Resources for Artists & Writers (2014)

Please let us know if you are aware of organizations or programs that support artists and writers. We would love to grow this list of opportunities and will update it annually.
