Are there any scholarships?

Contextural offers the Contextural Summer Residency Scholarship to individuals applying for the full time residency. The scholarship includes studio fees for the full time summer residency ($480 value). The scholarship will be awarded based on the quality and completeness of the application. New this year, we encourage scholarship applicants to include a research component to their Statement of Intent. This could be experimenting with a new process, exploration of a Fibre artist and their techniques or further developing your own practice. The research component will also be considered during jury review.

In your Statement of Intent, please include one or two sentences indicating your interest in applying for the scholarship and how you would plan to use the studio.

The scholarship recipient will be expected to show their work in the end of summer residency exhibition.

Please note: If you are a current Contextural Member and would like to be considered for the Contextural Residency Scholarship, you must submit a complete application, along with a note indicating you would like to be considered for the scholarship.
