International Program at ISCP

Artists and curators from anywhere in the world, including the United States, can apply for International Program residencies at ISCP. (For the Ground Floor program, please scroll down.) There are three ways of applying to the International Program: 1) a partner application 2) by ISCP open call or 3) a direct application.

These residencies are generally between three and twelve months and are sponsored by governments, corporations, foundations, institutions, organizations, galleries and private patrons. Each artist or curator is provided with 24-hour access to his or her studio, and free wireless internet. In addition, all residents can use ISCP’s common areas. ISCP does not provide or arrange living accommodation, however, a number of partner sponsors, who send participants to ISCP each year, have furnished apartments for residents. In addition, sponsors often give a stipend for accommodation, living expenses, travel and materials.

Partner application

ISCP collaborates with over forty partner governments, institutions and organizations to fund residency opportunities. Partner sponsors publicly call for applications for residencies at ISCP.

Over the course of the year, ISCP holds various open calls. Open calls are often sponsored by partner sponsors and are fully funded. Applicants will apply to ISCP directly meeting the specific parameters of the open call application and its process. Please check our open calls page regularly for more information and opportunities.

Direct application

If you wish to apply directly to ISCP, please read the information below carefully:

  • Please email the application form and supporting materials to application@iscp-nyc.org. ISCP does not locate sponsors for direct applicants.
  • Once accepted, artists and curators are responsible for securing funding. Please have a look at our previous sponsors for potential funding sources.
  • When planning your residency, please bear in mind that residencies are scheduled approximately one year in advance. We are currently scheduling 2017-2018.
  • There is no deadline and the application review takes place once every two months.
  • ISCP does not accept applications from artists or curators currently enrolled in school.
  • ISCP requires that artists and curators in residence are highly proficient in spoken and written English.

The following steps must be taken in the order below before an applicant can be accepted into ISCP’s International Program:

    • Application is sent to ISCP.
    • ISCP’s panel reviews the application within two months.
    • If the application is successful, the applicant receives an acceptance letter.
    • Applicant has two years from the date of the acceptance letter to locate funding.
    • When funding has been secured by applicant, ISCP confirms directly with sponsor. Residencies cannot be self-funded or crowdfunded.
    • When sponsor has confirmed, ISCP staff and applicant schedule residency.
    • If necessary, applicant must apply for a US visa (see below).
    • Applicant makes appointment with ISCP staff and arrives in New York.

 

The program fee for 2017 is $23,637.48 to $25,827.36 per year or $1,947.29 to $2,152.28 per month. The program fee for 2018 is $24,068.52 to $26,602.20 per year or $2,005.71 to $2,216.85 per month. In addition, the applicant needs to calculate accommodation, living, travel and health insurance costs for the duration of their stay in New York.

Addendum for foreign applicants regarding visa application:

Once a contract has been signed between the sponsor and ISCP, residents should immediately begin the process of securing a visa to enter the United States. The U.S. State Department’s consular website can be checked to confirm visa eligibility and requirements: http://travel.state.gov/

ISCP recommends making contact immediately with the nearest United States Consulate or Embassy in the resident’s home country. ISCP residents generally enter the United States on a B1/B2 visa, which is issued for business/tourist purposes. ISCP will provide a letter in support of the visa application to incoming participants.

Please fill out and email the downloadable application form along with your supporting materials to application@iscp-nyc.org.
