Cintas Fellowships in Visual Arts and Architecture Available to Cuban Artists
Cintas Fellowships are designed to acknowledge the creative accomplishments of artists of Cuban citizenship or direct descent and encourage the excellence of these artists in architecture, literature, music composition, and the visual arts.
Eligibility for these fellowships is limited to creative artists, living outside of Cuba, of Cuban citizenship or direct lineage (having a Cuban parent or grandparent).
Cintas Fellows are free to pursue their artistic activities as they wish. The fellowships are not awarded for academic study or research, or to performing artists. Fellowships are not awarded more than twice to the same person. Second awards are granted only to candidates demonstrating outstanding artistic development.
Fellowships are awarded annually in the amount of $15,000 each and are paid in quarterly stipends, beginning in September, for twelve consecutive months.
For 2006, fellowships will be awarded in the fields of Visual Arts and Architecture (2007 fellowships will be awarded in the fields of Visual Arts and Music Composition; 2008 fellowships will be awarded in the fields of Visual Arts and Creative Writing.)
