Junior ROWITA Fellowship

The deadline for the 2021 Junior ROWITA Fellowship application has been extended to April 15, 2021.

The Junior ROWITA Fellowship was created in 2011 by Joy D’Elia, the Cultural Council's  former Program Coordinator, to recognize and support graduating high school women who plan to advance their artistic skills through continued study and training.  

Three $500 Junior ROWITA Fellowships  are available in the Spring of each year, with awards for performing, literary, and visual artists.  Candidates must submit the application with a letter of recommendation from their arts instructor and samples of their work.   A grade point average of 3.0 or above is required, and the fellowship must be used for  college tuition or an advanced summer institute or workshop.  

Applications are reviewed by a panel including past ROWITA recipients with awards announced during the month of May.

Junior ROWITA Fellowships are funded through the support of individual donors.  To contribute to the Junior ROWITA program, please visit our donation page.
