TULSA, Okla. (AP) – The George Kaiser Family Foundation has established a national artist fellowship program known as the Tulsa Artist Fellowship.

The program will enhance Tulsa’s growing art scene by providing awards and resources to artists. Fellows will be awarded a stipend ranging from $15,000 to $40,000 and, in most cases, free housing and studio work space.

The fellowship is open to both local and non-resident artists and will provide awards for both early and mid-career artists. In the first year, fellowships will be awarded to artists in the discipline of public and gallery-oriented visual arts with the possibility of adding other disciplines in the future.

Fellowships will be merit-based grants and will have a one-year term with an option to renew for a second year. Five to 15 fellowships will be provided.
