Vilcek Foundation Invites Applications for Vilcek Prize for Creative Promise in Fine Arts
Vilcek Foundation

The mission of the Vilcek Foundation is to raise public awareness of the outstanding contributions of foreign-born scientists and artists living and working in the United States. To that end, the foundation is accepting applications from young artists for the Vilcek Prize for Creative Promise in Fine Arts.

The foundation will award three prizes of $50,000 each to young foreign-born artists who demonstrate outstanding early achievement. Artists practicing in a variety of media — including painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, sculpture, and other visual arts processes — are encouraged to apply.

To be eligible, applicants must have been born outside the United States; be no more than 38 years old as of December 31, 2016; be a naturalized citizen or permanent resident (green card holder) of the United States; intend to pursue a professional career in the United States; and not be a past winner of or finalist for the Vilcek Prize for Creative Promise.

See the Vilcek Foundation website for complete program guidelines, eligibility requirements, and application instructions.
