The Center for Cartoon Studies (CCS) announces the fifth year of The Cornish CCS Fellowship Residency


White River Junction, Vermont – The Center for Cartoon Studies (CCS) announces the fifth year of The Cornish CCS Fellowship Residency.

The month-long residency includes a $3000 stipend. The deadline to apply is July 1, 2021 for both residencies. The 2021 Residency dates are Ocober. 15 – November 15 and the 2022 Residency Dates are March 15 – April 15.

Located in Cornish, NH, The Cornish CCS Residency is designed to create a focused and inspiring environment for cartoonists to create exceptional work. Cornish is located 16 miles from The Center for Cartoon Studies (VT), in beautiful rural New Hampshire.
