The Individual Fellowship program provides support to artists, scholars, or arts professionals working in ACC’s eligible disciplines, empowering them to take risks, develop their artistic practices through research projects, and take time to immerse themselves in a different culture.
ACC emphasizes that the Individual Fellowship is not a residency, a fund to attend a singular conference/travel grant, or an individual’s personal public relations tour. Rather, ACC expects Individual Fellows to be self-directed and have a focused research project that enables and promotes cultural immersion, dialogue, relationship-building, collaboration, and/or exchange of knowledge among peers.
Compared to the New York Fellowship, the Individual Fellowship has more flexibility and freedom regarding location and timing of travel, travel length, and budget.
Applications are currently closed. The next Asia funding cycle will open in Fall 2024.
