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 20167-2017 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.
