SWAIA Youth Fellowships:

Our Youth Fellowships are for young artists who participate in the 2015 Indian Market. The monetary award is intended to help them with the purchase of supplies or research to assist them in enhancing their skills.
Youth Fellows receive a monetary award.

SWAIA Discovery Fellowships:

The SWAIA Discovery Fellowship intends to assist Native artists in the exploration of their artistic process and push the boundaries of their respective art form. Traditional or contemporary, emerging artist or established; this fellowship rewards innovation and encourages applicants to expand their work into undefined areas. The fellowship funds may be used to purchase materials, equipment or to cover research expenses including travel, but a highly detailed project plan should drive the fellowship. Higher scores will be given to applicants that provide specific outlines of the project and their use of the fellowship funds.
Discovery Fellows receive a monetary award and a complementary booth at the 2016 Santa Fe Indian Market (Excludes writers and filmmakers)
