Fellowships of $5,000 to USA Native artists for support to start or expand an arts enterprise. The program offers extended networking opportunities, technical support, professional development guidance, a base of working capital, and access to new market options. Funding is intended for artists to pursue specific arts business development goals for themselves and their families.

First Peoples Fund partners with Native artists who want to strengthen their business skills through the Artist in Business Leadership Fellowship Program. In this one-year, self-directed program, artists get the technical support, professional training, and working capital they seek to start or grow a thriving arts business.

First Peoples Fund’s Artist in Business Leadership fellowship doesn’t just help artists grow a business – it inspires them to fully honor their cultural creativity and grow the impact it has on their People. 

Eligible artists receive individualized technical assistance and professional development guidance to support specific entrepreneurial initiatives that will enhance their business and contribute to a consistent and reliable income for themselves and their families.

The Artist in Business Leadership Fellowship is designed for emerging and established artists. Artists interested in applying for a fellowship should:

  1. Be committed to pursuing art as a way to build a business and support themselves and their families.
  2. Have a strong vision and articulated plan for implementing effective market strategies over the one-year fellowship period.
  3. Explore new projects and works with this opportunity.
