The South Florida Cultural Consortium is a partnership among the local arts agencies of Broward, Martin, Miami-Dade, Monroe and Palm Beach counties. The Fellowship program is intended to nurture the artistic development of eligible visual and media artists who reside in one of these counties. Fellowships are not project-based; recipients may use the Fellowships according to their individual needs.
Fellowship Amount Information
The South Florida Cultural Consortium is a partnership among the local arts agencies of Broward, Martin, Miami-Dade, Monroe and Palm Beach counties. Fellowships of $15,000 and $7,500 are awarded to selected visual and media artists from Broward, Martin, Miami-Dade, Monroe and Palm Beach counties. No more than two fellowships of $7,500 may be awarded in each county.
All emerging, mid-career and established South Florida professional artists (those residing in Broward, Martin, Miami-Dade, Monroe or Palm Beach counties) are eligible to apply.
The Consortium defines a professional artist as a person who has created a recognized body of original works of art within an artistic discipline over a sustained period of time, and who is striving to achieve the highest level of professional recognition.
You may apply if you’re an artist serving as a volunteer on the boards, committees, task forces and/or similar advisory bodies of South Florida Cultural Consortium member agencies, as long as you’re not directly involved with the decision-making process for the Fellowship program.
Applicants must be over 18 years of age.
Previous winners must wait five years if they were awarded $15,000 and three years if they were awarded $7,500.
You are not eligible if you are engaging in art work as a hobby, an employee of the participating County governments or of the South Florida Cultural Consortium’s member local arts agencies, or a non-professional student artist pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree.
You must have resided and worked in one of the participating five counties from October 1, 2012 to October 1, 2013 and must apply from the county of your residence.
The Consortium awards the Fellowships contingent on proof of residency, which may include one or more of the following: a current State of Florida driver’s license; voter’s registration; and an IRS income tax return for 2012.
Submissions will be judged by the following general criteria:
• Degree of artistic excellence
• Evidence of an established and recognized body of work over a sustained period of time
• Consistency in the submitted body of work
All samples of your work submitted for review must have been completed within the last three years prior to the application date. Failure to comply with this condition will result in disqualification.
