Are you seeking advanced study in architecture, art, dance, landscape architecture, music, theatre, or urban and regional planning?
We invite you to apply for the Kate Neal Kinley Memorial Fellowship.
Three major fellowships are awarded:
- One of $20,000 in art and design, dance, instrumental or vocal music, or theatre
- One of less than $20,000 in any field of music
- One of less than $20,000 in any field of study within the College of Fine and Applied Arts
- Up to three additional fellowships of lesser amounts may also be granted upon committee recommendations for any field of study within the College of Fine and Applied Arts.
The fellowships are to be used by the recipients toward defraying the expenses of advanced study in the United States or abroad. The fellowships are open to graduates of the College of Fine and Applied Arts of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and to graduates of similar institutions of equal educational standing whose principal or major studies have been in the fields of architecture, art, dance, landscape architecture, music, theatre, and urban and regional planning.
Although there is no age limitation for applicants, other factors being equal, preference will be given to applicants who have not reached their 25th birthday.
A) This year beginning in the 2023-2024 cycle we will be requiring the selected finalists to present their proposal to the Kate Neal Kinley Adjudication Committee via ZOOM during the the Adjudications being held on April 17, 2024
B) “For University of Illinois applicants: This fellowship is not a tuition waiver granting award. Funds are only to support travel/research expenses in their field of study.”
