The MacDowell Colony Fellowships

The MacDowell Colony is the nation’s leading artist colony. The Colony nurtures the arts by offering creative individuals of the highest talent an inspiring environment in which they can produce enduring works of the imagination.

The Colony was founded in 1907 by composer Edward MacDowell and Marian MacDowell, his wife. It was the first artist colony in the United States.

Writers, visual artists, composers, filmmakers, playwrights, interdisciplinary artists, and architects come from all parts of the United States and abroad.

MacDowell encourages applications from artists representing the widest possible range of perspectives and demographics. Emerging and established artists may apply in the following disciplines: architecture, film/video arts, interdisciplinary arts, literature, music composition, theatre, and visual arts. Applicants who are enrolled in undergraduate or graduate degree programs as of the date of application are ineligible for a residency and therefore cannot apply. Doctoral candidates who have finished all coursework may apply.

There are no residency fees. Artists are responsible for the cost of travel to and from the Colony. We are pleased to offer stipends to artists in all artistic disciplines so that they may take advantage of a residency at the Colony.
