The Residency Program is open to visual artists, writers, composers, choreographers, interdisciplinary artists, performance artists and collaborative teams. Applicants must exhibit professional standing in their field; both mature and emerging artists of promise are welcome to apply.
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. Application deadlines are March 1 for Fall Session, which runs from August through early December, and October 1 for Spring Session, which runs from late-February through mid-June. Residencies vary in length from two to six weeks. Applications are accepted by mail or by online submission. Applications submitted by mail must be postmarked by the corresponding deadline. Online application submission closes at 11:59 p.m. Mountain Time on the corresponding deadlines.
Application fee $40.00. If accepted, a resident is asked to submit a $50.00 deposit, which is refunded following a residency and is not refundable if a residency is cancelled. There are no fees charged for a residency.
