Moore offers students the opportunity to compete for fellowships and awards that will support them financially as they enhance their skills. Students can apply individually, or as a team of two. There are Leadership, Travel, and Internship fellowships available. Senior Awards are also available for competitive application. More Info

  • Leadership fellowships provide ‘real world’ leadership experiences for emerging students committed to professional success
  • Travel fellowships offer students the funding to travel domestically and abroad to enhance their leadership and creative skills
  • Internship fellowships are provided to all juniors completing their required internship. The Penny Fox Internship Fellowship is the sole competitive fellowship for internships, providing more support than what is typically offered by the college.
  • Senior Awards celebrate students who have made a significant impact on the Moore community with their creativity, service, and leadership capabilities.

Leadership fellowships available for sophomores and juniors:

  • The Tiffany & Co Foundation Leadership Fellowship for $1,250 (for sophomores only)
  • The Frieda Fehrenbacher Women's Leadership Fellowship for $2,500 (for juniors only)
  • The Sis Grenald Women's Leadership Fellowship for $2,500 (for juniors only)
  • The Happy Fernandez Leadership Fellowship for $6,000 (for juniors only)

Competing students submit written proposals to work on projects that will help them develop personal qualities or skill sets useful to leaders. Leadership fellowships will allow them to work with an innovative individual or organization. These experiences expand the opportunities at Moore to cultivate leadership skills in the classroom and in student organizations.

Fellowships, Prizes, and Awards are conferred on the basis of merit alone. The selection processes may include initial screenings by departmental faculty or internal committees. The winners are chosen by outside jurors, who are regional experts in their fields. All of these opportunities are designed to help women and non-binary artists bridge the gap between the world of education and the world of work.
