Program Fees and Sponsorships:

Program Fees: The residency fee, including room, studio, and residency programming, is $400/week (57$/day). We will award three residency sponsorships of 3-5 weeks based on merit and need. This assistance provides full coverage of the residency fee. As these funds are limited to 3 residencies only, we appreciate your not applying for a sponsor if it is not essential to you. Please state on your application form if you are applying for a sponsorship. Sponsored artists must be dedicated to their requested time in residency. Sponsored artists are still responsible for their own transportation, food and materials. We encourage artists to apply for grants from other agencies, to seek sponsorship from private individuals, or to run their own fundraising campaign to provide coverage for program fees since we are limited to sponsoring three artists only.
