The Scholarship includes the use of the studio cottage, and a stipend of $7,500 that is intended to cover travel expenses from Canada – Gotland (return). As a part of this program, upon leaving the island, it is customary for participants to donate a piece of their artwork which they made during their summer residency to the Canadian Collection at the Brucebo museum.
The deadline for applications is March 9, 2020.
The Scholarships shall be granted through competition, based on academic merit, to full-time students pursuing a Master of /Magisteriate or Doctor / Doctorate (PhD) degree in the Faculty of Fine Arts (Visual Arts) at Concordia University nearing the completion of their degrees. Degree holders include those with a research-creation studio-based practice, including MA, MFA, MDes, as well as the MA/PhD Individualized Program (INDI) and the Interdisciplinary Humanities PhD Program (HUMA), with a primary supervisor in the Faculty of Fine Arts. Performance-based art practices are not eligible for consideration unless they are undertaken within the context of contemporary visual arts practices and form a minority of the applicant’s practice. The Scholarships are open to Canadian citizens and permanent residents only. The Scholarships are not renewable.
