VERMONT STUDIO CENTER
Fellowship Application Deadline—October 1, 2019
The Vermont Studio Center offers 2- to 12-week studio residencies year-round, hosting more than 50 visual artists and writers each month from across the country and around the world. VSC´s unique residency format also provides a monthly roster of distinguished visiting artists and writers who offer slide talks/readings and optional individual studio visits/manuscript conferences.
VSC has dedicated studios for 2D artists, 3D artists, and writers/translators, and also offer facilities for printmaking, ceramics, traditional craft media, and darkroom photography. All VSC residents receive a private studio space appropriate to their medium; a modest, comfortable private room in shared housing; and all meals daily.
The full cost of a 4-week residency at VSC is $4,250. Fellowship awards cover the full cost of attendance (and may also include a stipend for travel/materials—see specific awards and eligibility for details). Accepted applicants who do not receive a fellowship award are eligible for financial aid to help offset the cost of attendance; grant and aid packages are based on a combination of merit and need, and generally reduce the cost of attendance by 20 to 50 percent.
Program participants have absolutely no requirements or obligations while in residence. However, many choose to participate in optional weekly resident slide talk and reading nights. These opportunities are informal, supportive, non-competitive opportunities to share work and ideas with the wider resident community.
Applications are accepted online at vsc.slideroom.com or go to https://vermontstudiocenter.org/fellowships
The application fee is $25 (certain special fellowship awards waive this fee with proof of eligibility—see application for more information). Writers must submit manuscripts in PDF format. Visual artists can submit in a variety of popular file formats for images, videos, and sound files. SlideRoom manages this aspect of the application and provides clear instruction regarding file types, sizes, etc. Visual artists should upload their files in the sequence they would like them to be viewed, with the five (5) strongest images first. All fellowship applications are juried blind by outside professionals in the fields of visual arts and literature. Admission is competitive and portfolio-based, and fellowship awardees are determined via the recommendation of a panel of VSC's distinguished Visiting Artists/Writers Fellowship jurors.
