Brother Thomas Fellowship Program
The Brother Thomas Fellowship Program supports and celebrates a diverse group of Greater Boston artists working at a high level of excellence in a range of disciplines – the visual, performing, literary, media and craft arts – to enhance their ability to thrive and create new work. Funds come from an endowment established at the Boston Foundation by Brother Thomas Bezanson, a Benedictine monk and world-renowned ceramic artist who wanted the sale of his work to benefit other artists. Each Brother Thomas Fellow receives an unrestricted two-year award of $15,000. This fellowship program is not open to application. An anonymous panel of nominators suggests eligible artists who are then invited to submit work for consideration by a multi-disciplinary panel convened at the Boston Foundation.
