United States Artists Doris Duke Fellowships

The Doris Duke Charitable Foundation (DDCF) partners with United States Artists to support individual artists with flexible, unrestricted funding awards. The foundation entered this partnership in 2016, in collaboration with other national foundations, in effort to continue to strengthen the system of unrestricted support to individual artists across the country. DDCF’s initial commitment with United States Artists consists of 12 artist awards per year for five years, totaling 60 awards in the fields of jazz, dance and theater. These awards will be administered through the selection process of United States Artists and are called United States Artists Doris Duke Fellows. For more information about this initiative, please visit this page.
