specific requirements for participation

The intent of the scholarship is to promote international mobility for artists who apply, following admission to international ‘in residence’ programs. The scholarship total amount is Euro 10,000 (ten thousand) per year, to be allocated throughout multiple awards during the two yearly admissions, based on criteria taking into account artistic profile, clarity and significance of the projects, training opportunities offered by the host institution and quality of the project proposed (if any).
