APPLICATIONS NOW BEING ACCEPTED! The Donald and Kim Jurney Traveling Fellowship


"I have always depended on the kindness of strangers."
Blanche Dubois, A Street Car Named Desire


Applications are now being accepted for the 3rd Annual Donald & Kim Jurney Traveling Fellowship, for travel in 2019. 


To review Application Guidelines, click JURNEY TRAVELING FELLOWSHIP GUIDELINES


We need your help!

Donald and Kim Jurney contributed the initial funding for the Fellowship but we need your help to make sure this worthwhile project moves forward.  While knowing that many demands are made on your kindness,  the NAA together with the Jurneys ask that you consider helping to underpin the Fellowship, to make sure that this once-in-a-while opportunity continues to be offered to artists far into the future.  Because the Newburyport Art Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, your contribution is tax-deductible, too!  Please do what you can.  Thank you.

Checks may be made payable to Donald and Kim Jurney Traveling Fellowship and mailed to:
