NEA National Heritage Fellowships Nomination Form

To make a complete nomination, there are two steps.


Step One: Complete and submit the form below by July 30, 2021 by 11:59 p.m., Eastern Time.

Step Two: Submit nomination work samples and support letters to Applicant Portal, August 4, 2021 at 9:00 a.m., Eastern Time to August 10, 2021 by 11:59 p.m., Eastern Time. (Login credentials to the Applicant Portal will be emailed to you on the morning of August 4th.)

Use quotation marks or capital letters to set off titles of works or productions. We suggest that you create all text using your preferred word processing program and then copy it into the boxes provided in this form.
