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. 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. This research component will also be considered during jury review.
