Lighthouse Works

Lighthouse Works' primary focus is an artist-in-residence fellowship program that seeks to support those working in the vanguard of their creative fields. Fellowships are six-weeks in length and provides room and board, studio space and $1,750 in stipends.

Artist at any stage of their career are encouraged to apply for a fellowship through our online application system. Applicants are required to fill out an application form, submit work samples and attach a CV and current work statement. Applicants are encouraged to read completely the guidelines found under the "Before You Apply" section of our website (http://www.thelighthouseworks.com/apply/). Please note, applications that fail to follow these guidelines will be dismissed unread.

While our staff reviews applications for completeness, a jury of professionals in each artist's field evaluates the applications. Finalists will be invited for a phone interview and all applicants will be informed of the committee's decision by December 15, 2017. Artistic excellence is the primary criteria for acceptance as a Lighthouse Works fellow.
