Residential Scholarships at the Künstlerhaus Schloß Balmoral

In the current application period for Balmoral Scholarships in Bad Ems, seven residential scholarships will be awarded, six of which to artists. In order to promote the dialogue between research and art, this year, for the first time, one of the scholarships will be awarded to a junior scholar of the humanities (preferably in the field of Art Theory). Working in agreement and close cooperation with the Künstlerhaus and the artists holding a scholarship, the scholar will play an active part in the organisation and the activities of the institution. Additionally, Balmoral will award a project grant to allow a selected visual artist to realise a project elsewhere, which will eventually be presented at the Künstlerhaus Schloß Balmoral.

The scholarships and the project grant run for six months each. The scholarships are endowed with 1,200 Euros per month and include free accommodation at the Künstlerhaus Schloß Balmoral.

Candidates for a Balmoral Scholarship may include artists from the fields of painting, sculpture, installation, drawing, graphic art, design, photography, video, as well as new media, landscape art or nature art. Applicants will be required to possess a degree in art and to have continuously worked as artists for at least three years. Artists of all ages and nationalities are invited to submit their application. The art theory scholarship will be awarded to a person no older than 35 years of age or a person who graduated within the last five years. In order to enable artistic dialogue and interdisciplinary collaboration, candidates are ideally required to speak German, English and French.

Application forms and further information are available in pdf format at www.balmoral.de/stipendien. The deadline for applications is 15 July 2007.
