Each month, VSC welcomes over 50 artists and writers from across the country and around the world to our historic campus in northern Vermont.

All of our residencies include:

  • A private room in modest, shared housing

  • 24-hour access to a private studio space in one of our 6 medium-specific studio buildings

  • 3 communal meals per day (plus fresh fruit, coffee/tea/cold beverages, and cereal available around the clock)

We accept general applications year-round, and offer three fellowship deadlines per year:

  • February 15th

  • June 15th

  • October 1st

Our fellowship offerings change at each deadline. Admission is competitive and based on review of portfolio or manuscript.

Most residents stay with us for 1 month, so our sessions adhere to a 4-week calendar; however, residencies can be scheduled in 2-week increments ranging from 2 to 12 weeks if a shorter or longer stay better suits your needs.
