Supported residencies are funded opportunities available through an application process and awarded to people working at the intersection of art and science. Residents stay here free of charge and are responsible for their own travel costs and food while they are here. We are open to international and domestic applicants as long as eligibility requirements are met.

Applicants may choose a 5, 12 or 26 day session. All residency sessions begin on a Thursday and end on a Monday. Applicants must choose from the dates available. We cannot accommodate custom residency dates.
