Fellowship in the Arts

The University of the South invites students with exceptional promise to apply for a Fellowship in the Arts. The Fellowships in the Arts at Sewanee range in value from $10,000–$25,000 per year, renewable for four years. They are awarded to candidates with interests and accomplishments in visual studies, art history, film, dance, theatre, or music. Students selected for these fellowships will have the opportunity to dive more deeply into the life of the arts at Sewanee.

If you are interested in becoming a candidate, please apply for admission to Sewanee and complete your Common Application and the application for the Fellowship in the Arts. Portfolio items should be submitted by your chosen admission plan deadline.
