About this Fellowship

Funding for current and recent graduate students in fine arts to attend the Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts.

Founded in 1953 by Oskar Kokoschka, as the School of Seeing, the Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts offers a unique working environment at the Hohensalzburg Fortress, situated on a hill overlooking the city. Fellows learn from well-known and highly respected artists, curators, and art critics from around the world and immerse themselves in a European contemporary art scene, quite different from their U.S. academic environment. Fellows reside at Schloss Arenberg for the duration of their studies.

Deadlines are typically in mid-April. Please refer to the program website for details.
