International Artist Fellowships

USC welcomes its first group of International Artist Fellows, a graduate level fellowship for promising artists from across the Pacific Rim, Latin America and Southeast Asia.

The USC International Artist Fellowship Program calls for an international arts conversation - one that reflects diversity of cultures and our increasingly interconnected world.

The International Artist Fellowship, a program that was announced at the university’s 2011 Global Conference in Hong Kong, is a graduate fellowship for promising artists from across the Pacific Rim, Latin America and Southeast Asia. The fellows will form a global network of artists whose impact will be felt well into the future.

USC Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs Elizabeth Garrett oversaw the creation of the new program, which highlights the university’s six arts schools- Architecture, Cinematic Arts, Fine Arts, Dance, Music and Dramatic Arts. The program provides tuition, travel and living expenses for fellows, allowing them to focus on creativity and supporting the production of new work. Fellows stay at USC for two or three years, depending on the graduate arts degrees they are pursuing.

USC welcome its first cohort of International Artist Fellows this fall which include a film and video artist from Mexico, an animation and graffiti artist from Brazil, a classical guitarist from Russia and a dramatist from China. Meet our 2013 IAF cohort
