The Dedalus Foundation Master of Fine Arts Fellowships in Painting and Sculpture are awarded annually to final-year students who are graduating from an MFA degree program in the United States. Four fellowships are awarded every year, each carrying a stipend of $15,000.
We will accept nominations beginning October 2, 2023. The Deadline for applications is January 18, 2024, 5 p.m. EST.

Candidacy for the fellowship is by nomination only. Each fall, department chairpersons from MFA programs in painting and sculpture are invited to submit nominations. Each institution may nominate two candidates. Nominees should be graduating in the spring semester that directly follows the fall nominating cycle. Nominees need not be U.S. citizens.

Once nominations are submitted to the Foundation, nominees will receive application guidelines from us via e-mail. Nominees are asked to submit JPGs of eight work samples with a descriptive list of the works, and a biographical statement.

A committee of distinguished artists, curators and critics determines the winners of the fellowships.

Inquiries may be directed to mfa@dedalusfoundation.org.
