NYFA's NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellowship is an $8,000 unrestricted cash grant available to artists living in New York State and/or one of the Indian Nations located therein. It is designed to give artists at all levels of their artistic development the time, space, and resources they need to create. This is not a project grant, so applicants are encouraged to apply with work they have already completed that best represents their vision and voice. 


In an effort to encourage artists across New York State to apply, we are reaching out to arts organizations across the state to ask for help in sharing this news with your creative community.

Marketing Packet & Flyers Attached

To help spread the word, I have attached a marketing packet which includes information on the Fellowship, useful links and copy/paste text that you can share in newsletters and social media platforms. Also attached are some flyers that can be used for social media posts.


If you or anyone in your community are interested in applying, applications are currently open and will close Wednesday, January 25, 2023 at 5:00 PM (ET).
