You should always search for the latest information on the fellowship. Getting the greatest odds of achieving your goal comes from first understanding the qualifications and making sure you meet them. Prior to starting, seek to understand the particular aims of the Japan Foundation and their goals for the Artist Fellowship. If you meet the requirements, you should determine if you have any likelihood to receive the fellowship. Once you believe that there is a good chance of actually being a recipient of the Artist Fellowship, then you should put forth the effort to apply.

A crucial part of applying for the fellowship is paying close attention to the application. Some forms are drawn-out and boring, but it is absolutely critical that the forms are filled out properly. Avoid mistakes that might make you be denied as the result of something that could have been avoided.

Once the application is sent off, you should note when the Artist Fellowship chooses a winner and actually dispenses the money so you'll be aware of whether or not you can rely on the fellowship to provide additional support for your financial needs and what assistance it will provide, as there may be restrictions in what can be paid with the Artist Fellowship. Recently it has become more burdensome to be able to manage the expenses associated with school, and getting the Artist Fellowship to help with your financial aid can provide significant support. Even if you don't obtain the Artist Fellowship, don't give up, there are other fellowships for which you can apply.
