AAF Prize for Fine Arts

Postmark Deadline: 01 April

Each year, The AAF Prize for Fine Arts (formerly The Daisy Soros Prize and The Hayward Prize) offers US fine arts graduate students or those who have completed their graduate studies within the past two years the
opportunity to study at the Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts.  Up to five Soros Prize fellows are selected annually by a jury of artists and arts professionals to attend specific courses at the Summer Academy.  Fellows participate in daily classes for two to five weeks, depending on the length of the course selected, studying with distinguished international artists, such as Rona Pondick, Xenia Hausner and the Zhou Brothers.

The fellowship covers Summer Academy tuition, up to $900 of travel expenses, accommodation in Summer Academy’s approved student housing, and a small pocket money stipend.
