Global Arts Management FellowshipDEADLINE:
The DeVos Institute Fellowship serves entrepreneurial executives in the arts and cultural sector who are prepared to look critically at their work, challenge assumptions, and develop rigorous strategies to address the most pressing challenges facing their organizations, regions, and art forms at large.
Fellows attend a four-week residency in Washington, D.C. in July for three consecutive years and engage in mentoring and cohort-based activities between residencies. The program is provided free of charge through a competitive application process.
