Annenberg Fund Awards Fellowships to Seven Young Artists | NY Times

The fellowships, which are expected to be announced on Tuesday, are for “young artists of exceptional promise,” and include grants of $50,000 a year for up to two years. The fund maintains partnerships with several schools and arts organizations – among them, the Metropolitan Opera, the Yale School of Drama, the New England Conservatory of Music, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and Ballet Theater – which recommend potential recipients of the fellowships.
