Applications open for Hallie Ford Fellowships
January 26, 2016: The Ford Family Foundation has announced that applications for the 2016 Hallie Ford Fellowships in the Visual Arts will open Wednesday, January 27. The Foundation will award up to five $25,000 unrestricted fellowships to established Oregon visual artists.
Each year the Foundation assembles a new jury of five arts professionals from in and outside of Oregon who represent a wide range of expertise in the practice and/or curation of fine art and craft and have experience in fellowship selection processes. Because they are newly appointed, they may elect to select artists from disciplines other than in previous years. Therefore, artists who have applied but not been selected in past years are encouraged to re-apply. There is no fee and the application remains predominantly the same as in past years.
Application Opening: Wednesday, January 27, 8 a.m. Pacific Time
Application Closing: Wednesday, March 9, 10:59 p.m. Pacific Time
Applications will only be accepted by artists who apply through the CaFE system and meet the eligibility requirements as noted on the application. (More information about eligibility and the application process is provided here.) Artists who have not previously established a profile on the CaFE system must register before applying. This is a one-time process and there is a video on CaFE that leads applicants through the process. Late applications cannot be accepted and incomplete applications cannot be reviewed.
