CFEVA's Career Development Program Fellowship is a great thing to be a part of and I highly recommend applying. The ladies behind the program are amazing and so supportive, and it offers some great opportunities. Not to mention I met some amazing artists that I was in the program with, like Jed Morfit and Anne Canfield. Details from CFEVA are below:
