Congratulations to TAF Fellow Jen Liu for receiving a 2017 NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellowship in Digital/Electronic Arts. NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellowships, awarded in fifteen different disciplines over a three-year period, are $7,000 cash awards made to individual originating artists living and working in the state of New York for unrestricted use. These fellowships are not project grants but are intended to fund an artist’s vision or voice, regardless of the level of his or her artistic development.
The NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellowship‘s extensive list of past awardees includes the winners of five Academy Awards, five Tony Awards, eight Pulitzer Prizes, two National Book Awards and 15 MacArthur ”Genius” Fellowships. The funds are unrestricted, and can be used in any manner the artists deem necessary to further their careers.
