College Art Assocation initiated the Professional Development Fellowship Program in 1993 to help MFA and PhD candidates in art and art history bridge the gap between their graduate study and professional careers. The program's purpose is to support outstanding students from socially and economically diverse backgrounds who may have been underrepresented in their fields. By nurturing promising artists and art historians at the beginning of their careers, CAA aims to strengthen and diversify the profession as a whole.
