Artist Residency Program
The STUDIO for Creative Inquiry is currently accepting proposals for projects that do not require full funding by the STUDIO. These proposals should be submitted at least 6 months in advance of the desired residency period. Artists requesting these guidelines will also be placed on a mailing list to receive a call for proposals when the next fully funded residency program is in place.
The STUDIO is an arts research center designed to support creation and exploration in the arts, especially interdisciplinary projects that bring together the arts, science, technology and the humanities, and impact local and global communities.

Since its inception in 1989, the STUDIO and its artists have received national and international acclaim for the production of highly experimental work. A unique portfolio of artworks and educational tools has been developed.

Fellows will also receive an email account and access to the university libraries, computer labs and athletic facilities.
