Residency Grants


For many parents, the financial, emotional, and logistical demands of raising a family make attending a traditional artist/writer residency program impossible. We started with a two-year pilot program designed to encourage residency programs to make their opportunities more accessible to parent artists and writers.

We’ve been so encouraged by the number and quality of organizations that have applied to this program, and we’ve granted over $350,000 in support of their ideas and innovations.

Eligible organizations can apply to support existing programs, or to modify or create programs that address the needs of parent applicants.

The goal of this program is not only to reward organizations with original and effective solutions, but to share the results, so that other residencies might learn from them as well.

2019 Residency Grants

Our 2019 Residency Grant program is now closed. We are changing our residency grant schedule to give organizations more time for planning, promotion, and execution of their proposals. The application process for our 2020 residency grants will take place in the fall of 2019.
