Jon Schueler Scholarship Visual Artist in Residence


Applications are now being welcomed for the eighth Jon Schueler Scholarship, Visual Artist in Residence, an exciting international residency opportunity to take place in Skye, Scotland in the summer/autumn of 2020. The successful applicant will have the opportunity to come and research, develop and produce work for 3 months in the dedicated artist’s studio in a spectacular setting overlooking The Sound of Sleat, the place which so inspired Schueler as an artist.


The Scholarship is open to international artists (including Scottish and UK) working to the highest level of contemporary professional practice in a visual medium and with a particular interest in landscape and the environment. Artists must have completed formal arts education at least 3 years previously.


The Artist will receive:

  • a residency fee of UK £8,000 for the 12 week period

  • an allowance of UK £500 for materials

  • provision of an artist's studio with ICT support

  • reasonable travel costs of a single return trip to undertake the residency in Skye (12 weeks) met in full as part of the scholarship

  • accommodation on campus
