Hallie Ford Fellowships in the Visual Arts

Deadline: March 5, 2015 {ONLINE}

Hallie Ford Fellowships in the Visual Arts
The Ford Family Foundation

Roseburg, OR

The Foundation awards up to five unrestricted Hallie Ford Fellowships in the Visual Arts per calendar year, each in the amount of $25,000, to Oregon visual artists who have demonstrated a depth of sophisticated practice and potential for significant future accomplishment. Their work furthers the conversation of contemporary art in the 21st century. These fellowships honor the late Hallie Ford, co-founder of The Ford Family Foundation, based in Roseburg, who left a legacy based on a lifelong interest in and support of the visual arts. She believed strongly that others should have the opportunity to realize their talents.

General Information

Recipients are chosen based on the evolution of their work, the quality of their existing work and promising potential. They are chosen by a panel of arts professionals familiar with the work of Oregon visual artists and the national contemporary art discipline, and who are experienced in fellowship selection processes.


The Foundation recognizes that advancement is being made in a broad array of visual arts mediums and, therefore, does not want to be unnecessarily restrictive. With the exception of film, video and animation, the Foundation will accept applications from any visual arts medium.


Application is open to any Oregon visual artist who meets the following criteria:
◦ is a practicing visual artist currently producing works of contemporary fine art and craft;
◦ is a full-time resident of Oregon for at least 36 months prior to the application deadline and remains a resident through the duration of the grant period;
◦ maintains Oregon as his/her primary residence if he/she participates in an out-of-state residency program;
◦ is 30 years of age or older at the time of application;
◦provides evidence, through appropriate documentation, of seven (7) or more years of active professional participation in his/her medium; and
◦ is not enrolled in a degree-seeking program, either part time or full time, at the time of application or during the successive grant period.
