The Pew Charitable Trusts is driven by the power of knowledge to solve today's most challenging problems. Pew applies a rigorous, analytical approach to improve public policy, inform the public and stimulate civic life.
Pew Fellowships in the Arts awards grants of $60,000 to artists working in a wide variety of performing, visual, and literary disciplines. Pew established the program in 1991 and the grants provide financial support directly to the artists so they can dedicate themselves to creative pursuits exclusively.
The program aims to provide such support at moments in artists’ careers when concentration on artistic growth and exploration is most likely to have the greatest impact on an artist’s long-term professional development.
Pew Fellowship in the Arts grants are awarded to artists working in disciplines that include architecture and design, crafts, choreography, folk and traditional arts, literature, media and multi-media, music composition, playwriting, performance art, theater, visual arts, and multidisciplinary or cross-disciplinary work. Panels of distinguished artists and arts professionals from outside the five-county Philadelphia area review applications and select the fellows.
The Pew Fellowship in the Arts is one of seven programs of the Pew Center for Arts and Heritage, funded by Pew and administered by the University of the Arts.
