US residencies

There are loads of residencies for artists in the US. All that I've seen charge an application fee. Lots are open to artists outside the US and some even offer residencies that fit in with artists who have families/other jobs i.e. they are two weeks or less. Here are two

Ragdale Foundation Illinois

DEADLINES (postmarked):

January 15 for June - 1st week of September residencies (Notification after April 1)
May 15 for September - December residencies (Notification after August 1)
September 15 for following January-May residencies (Notification after December 1)

They charge but they have quite a few bursaries/financial aid. I would imagine you can apply for a training and travel grant too though the timing would be tight.

VCCA Virginia Centre for Creative Arts

January 15 deadline for residencies from June to September; notification is mailed by March 31.
May 15 deadline for residencies from October to January; notification is mailed by July 31.
September 15 deadline for residencies from February to May; notification is mailed by November 30.

They say:
Artists are accepted at the VCCA without consideration for their financial situation. The actual cost of a residency at the Virginia Center is $180 per day per Fellow. We ask Fellows to contribute according to their ability.

Not sure what that means really.

They have an exchange programme with the Tyrone Guthrie Centre, Annaghamakerrig, Co Monaghan.
