Since 1980, the North Carolina Arts Council has awarded fellowships to artists in a variety of disciplines who have been selected through rigorous panel screening processes. The Arts Council supports artists in their development and the creation of new work because they play an essential role in the creative vitality of the state. Fellowship recipients receive $10,000 to purchase supplies and equipment, or pursue other artistic goals.
