Named in honor of Laura Zucker on the occasion of her retirement from her 25-year tenure as Executive Director of the Los Angeles County Arts Commission, the Laura Zucker Fellowship for Policy and Research is the first ever fellowship for individuals to effect change at the regional level focused on arts and cultural policy development/reform/implementation in Los Angeles County and the accompanying research necessary to inform such policies.
Applications for the 2021 Fellowship have closed.
Meet Laura Zucker, the visionary leader, advocate, and self-proclaimed "cultural policy wonk" whose decades-long commitment to the arts and cultural sector of Los Angeles inspired the Fellowship.
