Lighthouse Works Now Accepting Applications for ’20 and ’21

Lighthouse Works is seeking applications from artists and writers for Sessions 42 through 46 of our Fellowship Program. Fellowships are six-weeks in length and provide room, board, studio space and $1,750 in stipends.

Session 42 September 1 to October 13, 2020
Session 43 October 27 to December 9, 2020
Session 44 March 16 to April 27, 2021
Session 45 May 11 to June 22, 2021

Our fellows enjoy a private bedroom, and share bathrooms, a kitchen and living space at our residential facility with the 4 other fellows in their cohort. They are provided a studio located adjacent to Silver Eel Cove where our ferry arrives and departs the island. The studios are private, flooded with light and face the ocean. Additionally, Lighthouse Works maintains a wood and metal shop, and kiln for our fellow’s use.

Artists at any stage of their career are encouraged to apply for a fellowship through our online application system. Applicants are required to fill out an application form, submit work samples, attach a CV and work sample statement, and remit a $25 application fee. Applicants are encouraged to read completely the guidelines found under the “Before You Apply” section of our website. Applications that fail to follow these guidelines will be dismissed unread.

While our staff reviews applications for completeness, a jury of experts in each artist’s field evaluates the applications and identifies the finalists. Finalists will be invited for phone interviews, and all applicants will be informed of the committee’s decision by the notification date for the relevant application period. Artistic excellence is the primary criterion for acceptance into the Fellowship Program.
