Individual Artists

Individual Artists showcase the power of the individual by, enabling them to successfully realize their visions.

NYSCA supports the creation of new work by New York State artists through artist-initiated projects across a wide range of areas. Artists at any career stage are welcome to apply.

It is important to note that each application by an individual artist must be sponsored by an eligible New York State nonprofit organization. Grants are awarded to the sponsoring organization. The sponsor then directs the funds to the individual artist.

In addition, NYSCA supports artist fellowships in a variety of arts disciplines through the NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellowships.
