2016/2017 Jerome Foundation

Fellowships for Emerging Artists

Online Application Site

Welcome to the MCAD/Jerome Foundation Fellowships for Emerging Artists online application site.

Application Deadline:

Friday, September 23, 2016, at 12:00 p.m. (noon) CT

We only accept online applications. To begin you will need to create a new account even if you have applied for this fellowship before. Click create a new account. Once you have done this, you can go to the horizontal navigation bar to fill out the entry form and upload your images, artist statement, and résumé (see steps 1-7).

Go to the Requirements page under the "About Jerome" section to learn more about the application. The "Help/FAQ" section provides detailed formatting and uploading instructions. We suggest that you familiarize yourself with the application process at least a week in advance and allow plenty of time to properly format and upload image and video files. Do not wait until the morning that the application is due to start the process as the fellowship office will have limited time to address any issues that arise.

You can return to this site and access your account by logging in at the right side of the page. You may do this as many times as you like until you complete your submission. Once you hit "submit," you will no longer be able to log in and make any changes to your submission.


You are welcome to attend an MCAD/Jerome Information Session with Program Director Kerry Morgan. Also, a video of an information session will be available after August 17.
