The Rona Jaffe Foundation Fellowship
Generous support from The Rona Jaffe Foundation has established the Rona Jaffe Foundation Fellowship at the Fine Arts Work Center. This fellowship will be awarded each year, beginning in 2022-23, to an emerging woman writer of exceptional promise. The fellowship fully funds the 7-month residency and includes a $2,500 prize to help defray the cost of travel and living expenses.
RJF fellows must be permanent residents of the U.S. and may not have published a first book in standard edition. All eligible candidates will be automatically considered for this fellowship by the Fine Arts Work Center.
There is no separate application process for the Rona Jaffe Foundation Fellowship.
Fellowship Access Fund
The Fine Arts Work Center is in the process of establishing a Fellowship Access Fund, to increase access to the 7-month Fellowship opportunity for select candidates with particular financial need.
This Fund supports extraordinary expenses that may prevent a selected candidate from accepting the Fellowship or from fully participating during the 7-month period. One-time awards will be limited, and range from $500 and to $2,500.
Allocations are made following review by a committee made up of FAWC leadership, that includes staff, Trustees, and Fellowship Committee members, and will be paid upon selection.
There is no separate application process for the Fellowship Access Fund.
