Mary Hotchkiss Williams Travel Fellowship

The Mary Hotchkiss Williams Travel Fellowship for the Visual Arts supports summer travel abroad for qualified Yale undergraduates engaged in making visual art.

About the Fellowship

The Mary Hotchkiss Williams Travel Fellowship for the Visual Arts, awarded by the Yale University Art Gallery, supports travel abroad for qualified Yale undergraduates engaged in making visual art. This year, up to four fellowships will be awarded to students who demonstrate superior performance in their respective fields of artistic practice and present a proposal for travel that will provide enriching experiences to the developing artist. The fellowship carries a grant of $5,500. Preference is given to studio-art majors but students majoring in other fields at Yale College are invited to apply.

The application deadline for 2015 fellowships is Friday, March 6, 2015.

For more information, see the Student Grants Database at https://yale.communityforce.com/Funds/Search.aspx.
