New York Fellowship

The New York Fellowship is a 6-month program that provides support to artists, scholars, and arts professionals working across disciplines, empowering them to take risks, develop their artistic practices, and take time to immerse themselves in the rich and varied cultural life of New York City.

The New York Fellowship aims to foster grantees’ understanding of New York City’s many diverse cultures. We posit that cultural understanding is uniquely imparted through first-hand experience, regardless of form or method, and that the impact of cultural exchange manifests in diverse ways. We encourage applicants to clearly articulate the desired outcome(s) they wish to gain from this Fellowship in their application.

ACC emphasizes that this 6-month grant is not a residency or an individual’s personal public relations tour. Rather, the New York Fellowship is a precious pause in everyday activities to take a deep dive into New York City’s rich cultural landscape. ACC hopes that Fellows will take the learnings and insights from their Fellowship experience to influence their own practice, and later contribute to the artistic and cultural communities in their home country.

Applications are currently closed. The next Asia funding cycle will open in Fall 2024.
