The Lighthouse Works’ fellowship program accepts artists working in a wide range of disciplines, but we are best able to accommodate visual artists, writers, and musicians. Artistic excellence is the primary criterion for acceptance as a Lighthouse Works fellow.

Any serious artist at any stage of his or her career is welcome to apply through our online application system. Applicants are required to fill out an application form and to submit work samples and a statement of intent. While our staff reviews applications for completeness, a panel of professionals in the applicant’s artistic field evaluates each portfolio. Because the fellowship program accepts only 20 artists a year, our process is necessarily quite selective.

While fellows’ primary obligation is to the solitary pursuit of their creative projects, we do ask every artist to participate in a single studio tour, reading or performance for the public at the conclusion of their fellowship. In addition, fellows have the chance (though they are not required) to teach workshops, mentor students, or invite them for studio visits, and many of our past fellows have taken that opportunity.

Our program is unique in its size and intimacy; we invite just three artists for each fellowship season. In a program this small, everyone—from artists to staff to community members to the workers trailing to the ferry at day’s end—gets to know each other. Thus the fellowship, while allowing ample solitude and plenty of unstructured work time, also allows for conversation, collaboration, and friendship.

The Lighthouse Works’ primary purpose is to provide artists with the space and time, free from material concerns, to do their best creative work. Our fellowship program accepts artists working in a wide range of disciplines, but we are best able to accommodate visual artists, writers, and musicians. Artistic excellence is the primary criterion for acceptance as a Lighthouse Works fellow.

Fellowships are six weeks in length and provide fellows with room, board, studio space, a $250 travel allowance and a living stipend of $1,500.

Applicants are required to fill out an application form and to submit work samples and a statement of intent. While our staff reviews applications for completeness, a panel of professionals in the applicant’s artistic field evaluates each portfolio.
