The QM-Jerome Foundation Scholarship for Emerging Artists will grant two visual artists $ 20,000 each, self-studio space, professional development advice, and close mentoring from QM staff members working on artists’ projects. Fellows will have access to individual studies from October 2022 to September 2023. These one-year scholarships will culminate in solo project exhibitions at QM in Fall 2023.
The QM-Jerome Foundation Fellowship is open to emerging visual artists living in the five boroughs of New York City.
