Residencies at the Vermont Studio Center are offered based on a review of the portfolio or manuscript submitted by each applicant.
We accept residency applications year-round on a rolling basis; however, applicants who wish to be considered for a fellowship that covers the full cost of a four-week residency must submit a fellowship application at one of our three annual award deadlines.
Fellowship applications are reviewed by a revolving jury of VSC Visiting Artists and Writers. The Vermont Studio Center welcomes all applicants representing the full range of aesthetic perspectives.
The Vermont Studio Center has partnered with SlideRoom to bring you an improved online application process:
