Texas Folklife’s Apprenticeships in the Folk Arts program provides awards of up to $2500 for master artists to train qualified apprentices living in Texas. The apprenticeship program allows an apprentice to improve and refine their craft under the direction of an experienced master artist over a period of several months.

Master artists and apprentices should apply together and submit one application. Apprentices should have a significant amount of experience with their chosen tradition and be strongly committed to improving their skills and working with the community in order to carry on the tradition. Master artists should be among the finest practitioners of their craft in their community. Applications from all traditions are welcome.

Texas Folklife is a statewide non-profit organization dedicated to the presentation and preservation of the diverse cultures and living heritage of the Lone Star State. Since 1984, Texas Folklife has honored the cultural traditions passed down within communities, explored their importance in contemporary society, and celebrated them by providing accessible and joyful arts experiences.
