Applicants for the CAPO Fellowship should be of high standing in their chosen field. This should be demonstrated by evidence of commitment to their practice over a significant period of time. The purpose of the CAPO Fellowship is to enable an artist to concentrate on his/her work for a set period of time (up to one year). Normally this assistance will be aimed at enabling an artist to complete a body of work, develop a new technique, or simply improve the standard of their work by concentrating on it more fully for a period. No specific sum of money is set aside for the CAPO Fellowship.  As with all types of CAPO assistance, it is subject to the availability of funds.

The CAPO Fellowship is supported by The Riverview Group.
