  • A $500 monetary award

SWAIA DISCOVERY FELLOWSHIP: 2 Awardees

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 will receive:
  • A $3,500 monetary award ($2500 initial payment upon Award of Fellowship; $1000 balance to be paid at the completion of your project. Deadline for completion is December 31, 2017.)
  • A complimentary booth at the 2017 Santa Fe Indian Market (Excludes writers and filmmakers)
