2017 MacColl Johnson Fellowships for Composers

The Fellowships will be awarded to emerging and mid-career Rhode Island composers whose work demonstrates exceptional creativity, rigorous dedication and consistent artistic practice, and significant artistic merit.

On behalf of The Rhode Island Foundation, the Alliance of Artists Communities is pleased to announce that applications for The Robert and Margaret MacColl Johnson Fellowships are now being accepted through September 5, 2017. The 2017 fellowships will be awarded to emerging and mid-career composers.

The Robert and Margaret MacColl Johnson Fellowship Fund, established at the Rhode Island Foundation in 2003, provides up to three $25,000 artist fellowships each year, rotating among composers, writers, and visual artists on a three-year cycle. In all three disciplines, the Fellowships will be awarded to emerging and mid-career Rhode Island artists whose work demonstrates exceptional creativity, rigorous dedication and consistent artistic practice, and significant artistic merit. The significant financial support provided by the Fellowships enables artists to concentrate time on the creative process, focus on personal and professional development, expand their body of work, and explore new directions.
