The Fulbright Foundation in Greece will award one grant annually to Greek creative practitioners for participation in SFAI’s international interdisciplinary social-justice themed Residency Program.

The grant period must take place between January and March 2020. Fulbright grants at SFAI are awarded for three months. Candidates are selected on the basis of academic excellence, potential for professional development, civic engagement, extra-curricular activities, the applicant’s ability to creatively and critically engage with the theme of the residency season for which they are applying, and personal qualities/abilities to serve as a cultural ambassador for Greece. The selection focuses on the professional experience of the artist, the quality of their past work, and their potential to sustain productive residency at SFAI.
