“Never before have art, creativity and self-expression been more relevant to our lives as ways to make visible the everyday, celebrate diversity and connect us to others.  The USC International Artist Fellowship encourages talented young artists from increasingly influential regions of the world to shape that vision, taking account of a global context.”    — USC Provost Elizabeth Garrett

The USC International Artist Fellowship Program calls for an international arts conversation – one that reflects diversity of cultures and our increasingly interconnected world, with a focus on the rapid ascent of nations of the Pacific Rim, Latin America and Southeast Asia.

Fellowship awards provide the opportunity for emerging artists to pursue graduate study in any one of USC’s six preeminent arts schools — Architecture, Cinematic Arts, Fine Arts, Music, Dramatic Arts and Dance, along with the Fisher Museum where historic, modern and contemporary work are exhibited.   Tuition, travel and living expenses will be paid by the fellowship, allowing the student to focus on creativity and producing new work, while learning from USC’s world renowned arts faculty.   Fellows will have regular and planned opportunities to interact with their peers, as well as professionals working in Los Angeles’ vibrant downtown arts corridor.
