Gallatin-Newington-Cropsey Foundation Fellowship

The Gallatin-Newington-Cropsey Foundation Fellowship Program

In partnership with the Gallatin School of Individualized Study at New York University, the Newington-Cropsey Foundation invites students in the Gallatin School (both undergraduates and graduate students) to apply for its annual fellowship for emerging artists and scholars. The fellowship gives students a unique opportunity to participate in seminars, study trips, and public forums where they can present and develop their own work, while building crucial connections within the artistic and academic world. In addition to intellectual support, the fellowship includes access to the library at the Newington-Cropsey Academy of the Arts in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York, where fellows are assigned their own desk space.

The Newington-Cropsey Foundation

The Newington-Cropsey Foundation preserves and displays the home and artwork of Jasper F. Cropsey, Hudson River School artist. Cropsey's home, Ever Rest, is listed on the National Register of Historic Sites. Through its work, the Foundation provides an opportunity for the public to experience historical and cultural examples of life in the Hudson Valley in the 19th century, as well as an opportunity to enjoy the works and home of one of America's finest artists.
