Applying for a residency/fellowship

Applications for 2018 fellowships (i.e. fee-free residencies) closed July 1. Responses will be sent during November 2017. We read applications for fellowships via Submittable (the category will appear at 12 a.m. on the first day of the application period). Details and application process for fellowships are on our fellowship application page.

Applications for fee-paying residencies are accepted on a rolling basis year-round. We read these applications via email, and there is no application fee. (Note: we are fully booked for the 2017 season. We are accepting bookings for 2018.)

Please note that although we will make every attempt to honor scheduling preferences, we cannot guarantee them.
