The SECAC Artist’s Fellowship

SECAC is an organization devoted to the promotion of art in higher education through facilitating cooperation among teachers and administrators in universities and colleges‚ professional institutions and the community served by their institutions.The SECAC Fellowship was established in 1981 for the purpose of supporting member artists and to encourage individual creative growth‚ the development of new ideas for exhibitions and creative projects. Through this program‚ SECAC can more completely serve member artists and institutions.

Fellowship Amount

$5000.00 to be awarded to an individual artist or to a group of artists working together on a specific project.


Any member of SECAC may apply; all group applications require membership for all in the group. Memberships must be current at the time of review. The cost of individual membership is $70.00. Apply for membership online and pay by check or by MasterCard/Visa/Discover. Previous grant recipients must wait five years before re-applying.

Responsibility of Grantee

No restrictions are made by SECAC on how the fellowship funds are expended. SECAC requests that the fellows provide documentation of the project or work produced during the fellowship period (one year from receipt of fellowship money). Documentation may take the form of an exhibition at the subsequent annual SECAC conference‚ a catalogue or other publication form‚ an exhibition of the work exhibited at another institution during the fellowship period‚ a presentation or other proposed and accepted form of documentation. There is no fee for application for the fellowship.

Responsibility of SECAC

The full amount of the fellowship will be paid to the fellow (or group of artists working jointly) when the fellow agrees to accept the award and the conditions of the award. The host institution of the subsequent SECAC conference agrees to attempt to accommodate any exhibition/installation proposed by the fellow.
