Artists, writers and composers from around the United States and the world, in all stages of their professional careers, are invited to apply to work on individual or collaborative projects. Applications are also welcome from those writing about the arts, and from individuals working in the natural sciences. Fellows are chosen by a panel of professionals in the arts and humanities in a highly competitive application process. The quality of an applicant's work is given primary consideration. Final invitations for residencies are extended at the discretion of the Ucross Foundation.
There are two residency sessions annually. Applications must be postmarked by the corresponding deadline in order to be considered by the panel of jurors. Application deadlines are March 1 for Fall Session, which runs from August through early December, and October 1 for Spring Session, which runs from February through mid-June. Residencies vary in length from two to six weeks.
To apply, each applicant must submit a completed Ucross Foundation Residency Program Application Form accompanied by the required materials, including three letters of recommendation, a project description and a work sample as described in the Application Guidelines. Please email, write or call the Ucross Foundation for application materials, or download the application from this site. Completed applications and all references must be mailed to the Foundation and may not be electronically transmitted. There is a $40 nonrefundable application fee. There is no fee for a residency.
