A fellowship at the RA Schools for a US artist
Applications are open for The Starr Fellowship, a year-long residency for a visual artist who is a U.S. national, at the Royal Academy Schools.
The Fellowship provides a bursary of £26,000 and a studio in the school to support the development of the Starr Fellow’s practice.
The Starr Fellow will also gain teaching experience by contributing to the RA Schools programme. They have access to the RA Schools’ resources, including lectures and talks, technical facilities and expertise, and the RA’s extensive Collection, Library and Archive. At the end of the Fellowship, the artist is invited to exhibit their work.
The ideal Starr Fellow will:
• Be a US national currently based outside of the United Kingdom.
• Have an established practice in the United States, and will have taken part in exhibitions or other projects.
• Have teaching experience and an MFA or similar (desirable), or want to extend their teaching experience
