The Obama Foundation Fellows will be a diverse set of community-minded rising stars – organizers, inventors, artists, entrepreneurs, journalists, and more – who are altering the civic engagement landscape. By engaging their fellow citizens to work together in new and meaningful ways, Obama Foundation Fellows will model how any individual can become an active citizen in their community.

The NACF Mentor Artist Fellowship is a regional artist award focused in the Pacific Northwest, Southwest and Upper Midwest areas of the United States. The fellowship is open to established American Indian or Alaska Native artists of ten years or more who want to mentor an emerging American Indian or Alaska Native artist apprentice for a period of one year in the Traditional or Contemporary Visual Arts fields. 

The NACF National Artist Fellowship includes an unrestricted monetary award that provides additional support for individual, practicing accomplished Native artists to explore, develop and experiment with original and existing projects.

Awarded National Artist Fellows will work with their communities and share their culture in numerous ways.

The Native Filmmaker Fellowship offers four filmmakers the opportunity to attend the Big Sky Documentary Film Festival, DocShop filmmaker's forum, and a private seminar with leaders in the Indigenous filmmaking community and the film industry at large. The fellows will also automatically qualify to participate in the 4th World Media Lab at the Seattle International Film Festival in May 2018.

Sundance Institute and Adobe Project 1324 are teaming up to find the next 15 Sundance Ignite Fellows -- emerging filmmakers who are creating stories that bring their passion, voice, and perspective to life. 

We’re asking filmmakers to submit a one-to-eight minute short that shows us What stories ignite you?and demonstrates the power of film to ignite creativity, passion, and impact. 

The Chicago-based Harpo Foundation was established in 2006 to support artists who are underrecognized in their field. The foundation also seeks to stimulate creative inquiry to encourage new modes of thinking about art.
