You are eligible to apply if you are a citizen or permanent resident of the United States, as well as a current legal resident of Virginia, and have been so for at least 12 consecutive months prior to the application deadline. You must also continue to be a legal resident of Virginia for the Fellowship period. A legal resident has a valid Virginia driver’s license. and/or pays income taxes in Virginia, and/or is a registered Virginia voter. Students paying in-state tuition to an accredited Virginia college, university, or school of the arts qualify as legal residents of Virginia. If you are a legal Virginia resident but attend an accredited college, university, or school of the arts outside of the state full-time, you may still apply. Applicants must be able to provide verification of residency upon request.
If you attend an accredited college, university, or school of the arts in Virginia but do not qualify for in-state tuition, you may not apply for a VMFA Fellowship until you establish Virginia residency.
You are eligible to apply if you are planning to be enrolled full-time and qualify as a Virginia resident, as outlined above, for the entire academic year at an accredited college, university, or school of the arts. Half-year fall semester Fellowship awards (worth $2,000) may be considered on a case-by-case basis for full-time students in the final year of a degree program who plan to graduate.
