The City of Science Darmstadt maintains a studio house to support young graduates of art colleges in Germany. The former residence and studio building of the artist and benefactor Charlotte Prinz gives young artists the opportunity to develop their work without a large economic burden.
Graduates of German art academies and colleges as well as of comparable institutions who are not older than 35 years at the time of application are eligible to apply. Artistic studies must have been successfully completed at the time the fellowship begins.
Scope and support For two years, the city of Darmstadt will support the free stay in the Atelierhaus Prinz with a monthly allowance of 1,100 euros. Incidental expenses are to be borne by the scholarship holder. Residence in the Atelierhaus Prinz is compulsory for the duration of the scholarship.
Application Work can focus on painting, drawing (including all other techniques on paper), printmaking, photography or new media. A meaningful application is expected, including a letter of motivation, at least ten photographic images of the applicant's own artistic works in a minimum format of 13 x 18 cm and a certified copy of the certificate of graduation or, if the studies have not yet been completed, an expert opinion from a professor providing information about the qualification and suitability.
Application materials must be submitted no later than March 31, 2023.
