Artist Applicant Section

The California Community Foundation (CCF) is pleased to announce that it is accepting applications to the 2016 CCF Fellowship for Visual Artists beginning Friday, June 3, 2016. Applications will be accepted online via only.

The deadline to apply is Thursday, June 30, 2016 at 11p.m. PST.

The California Community Foundation (CCF) awards one-year fellowships to outstanding Los Angeles based artists working in the visual arts through the CCF Fellowship for Visual Artists.  The Fellowships for Visual Artists is a unique opportunity for artists because it is an investment in an artist’s career rather than in a particular project.

This year twelve artists are chosen by panels of art professionals to receive a one-year CCF Fellowship for Visual Artists, based on artistic merit and commitment to L.A. A Fellowship is more than just a check. CCF Fellows receive:

  • $25,000 one-year unrestricted grant
  • Mandatory Artists’ Retreat
  • Membership in a prestigious group of artists
  • Other opportunities to develop business skills to be fully self-supporting over time

Together, we inspire communities to create and enjoy art.
