USA FellowUSA was launched in September 2005 with $20 million in seed funding provided by a coalition of leading foundations—Ford, Rockefeller, Prudential, and Rasmuson—in an act of unprecedented private investment in individual artists and the creative potential of America. Their initial investment enables our organization to pilot the USA Fellows program, awarding unrestricted $50,000 grants to fifty artists each year beginning in 2006.

USA wants to provide funding that will give artists the means to reflect upon and further develop their art. The USA Fellowships are meant to function as “research and development” funding or “venture capital,” thereby encouraging recipients to test new ideas and applications in their work.
