Project narrative/rationale should include information about how time will spent during the residency and how applicant’s work will benefit from the setting/time away from campus. It should also outline all project deliverables and potential impacts.
Residents must plan at least one public activity during their stay on the island. These may include a reading, workshop, or open studio.
Recipients must also present their work to the campus community upon their return (via programming with the Arts and Humanities Council) and submit a final report within one month of the residency’s end.
Successful applicants are responsible for all travel arrangements. Funding to support travel, per diems, and other trip expenses are not included in the residency, but applicants are encouraged to apply to CAHI, OVPR, IAS, and other campus units to help cover these expenses.
