Arts Fellowship Experience


Applications for the 2018-2019 fellowship term are now available at the Fellowship Application Information page.

Fellowship Experience

The two Arts Fellows will spend six months in the United States based in New Haven, Connecticut. The two selected fellows will receive project funding, housing, a basic living stipend, a peer mentor, an arts faculty mentor, domestic trips, and round-trip flight from Hong Kong to New Haven. Visit our Virtual Info Session for more details about past experiences.

Fellows are expected to be self-reliant and actively pursue relationships with other artists, peers, and advocates. Yale-China pairs each fellow with a faculty mentor at Yale to help guide the fellows as they develop their projects and deepen their connections.

We invite artists of any discipline to consider becoming a fellow, which means joining the ranks of the outstanding Yale-China Fellows who build trust, share culture, and form friendships over the course of their lives.

Service-Learning: Community Engagement and Growth through Reflection

Service-Learning opportunities provide fellows with experience in engaging communities, providing specialized services to those who would otherwise not have access, and reflecting on these interactions as a means for personal growth. Fellows meet with staff weekly to discuss these experiences and to receive program guidance during their time in the United States.

Project Research: A Means to Creative Transpacific Collaboration

The Fellows will research and develop their projects over the course of his/her residency in New Haven. This project should reflect an interest of the artist and have entry points for cross-cultural understanding. The research for this project will be presented at the International Festival of Arts & Ideas. Arts & Ideas staff will advise fellows throughout the six months leading up to the research presentation.
