Pew Fellowships in the Arts
The Pew Fellowships in the Arts is an organization established by the Pew Charitable Trusts in 1991 which awards grants to Philadelphia-area artists. The grants provide artists with an economic freedom that presents the opportunity to focus on their individual practices over a considerable period of time—to explore, to experiment, and to develop his or her work more fully. The program aims to provide such support at moments in an artist’s career when a concentration on artistic growth and exploration is most likely to have the greatest impact on the artist’s long-term professional development. Fellowships are awarded to practitioners in a wide range of media and aesthetic traditions and at critical stages in their career development, from early to mature.

Up to twelve fellowships are granted annually, to artists applying in one of twelve discipline categories that rotate on a four-year cycle. Applicants are accepted each year for the three discipline categories under consideration. Fellowship selections are made through a two-tier peer review process. Applications are first reviewed by discipline-specific panels, which select finalists to be reviewed by a final interdisciplinary panel. Panelists are artists and arts professionals from outside of the Philadelphia area; chosen for their expertise, they serve for one year.
