Fellowships support students, faculty for Wyoming artist residencies

Yale School of Drama and Yale School of Music have partnered with the Ucross Artist Residency Program in northeast Wyoming for two new endowed fellowships ranging from two to four weeks. The fellowships, which also include travel stipends, will support the creative work of graduate students or faculty.

“Ucross’s collaboration with Yale runs deep, from our founder, Raymond Plank, to the extraordinarily talented Yale artists and alumni we’ve welcomed to our campus,” Sharon Dynak, Ucross’s president and executive director, said. “These endowed funds, and the residencies they support, will provide new ways for Ucross to foster creativity and nurture the work of some of the nation’s most promising artists.”

Since its establishment in 1981, Ucross has provided more than 2,500 residencies to writers, visual artists, and composers on its 20,000-acre ranch.
