Opportunities for Emerging Literary and Performing Artists
The Connie Boochever Fellowship application deadline for emerging literary and performing artists is September 1, 2009. The purpose of the Connie Boochever Artist Fellowship is to recognize and assist Alaska emerging artists of exceptional talent. Fellowships are granted by the Connie Boochever Endowment, through the Alaska Arts and Culture Foundation. The program is administered by the Alaska State Council on the Arts. Participation is limited to emerging artists pursuing an art form on an ongoing basis.
A select number of $2,500 fellowships will be awarded. Uses of a fellowship are very broad. However, funds must be spent on activities related to the fellow's creative career.
