Mary Hotchkiss Williams Travel Fellowship for the Visual Arts

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.
