STIPENDIATEN - Information On Allocation Of Grants

Please note: Foreign Artists who live in Germany on a permanent basis cannot apply directly at Künstlerhaus Schloss Wiepersdorf. They are asked to please contact the Cultural Ministry of the German federal state in which they have their main domicile. Not all the federal states of Germany allocate grants for a stay at Künstlerhaus Schloss Wiepersdorf though.

Every year various institutions allocate grants for a stay at the Künstlerhaus Schloss Wiepersdorf to qualified artists and academics of the following fields: literature, journalism, arts, fine arts, film/video art, composition. The length of a stay varies between two and five months. Fellows receive a monthly stipend of approximately 1125 € from which 385 € are retained by the house for full board (for further details on the stay at Künstlerhaus Schloss Wiepersdorf see working conditions).

The decision about the allocation will be made by a jury responsible for his/her respective art field. In order to be considered, a candidate must have submitted the completed form (see link below), one passport photo and the requested documentation. Incomplete consignments (e.g. work samples without completed form) will be sent back and will not be considered for the selection. It is not possible to hand in papers or work samples later.

Work samples required (they should be as recent as possible):

  1. Writers / Journalists / Scholars

    books, publications, manuscripts, reviews
    (please do not send more than 2-3 books, if possible in English or German)

  2. Fine Artists

    catalogues, publications, photographs, slides
    (please do not send originals and not more than 12 slides and 2-3 catalogues)

  3. Composers

    scores, tapes / CDs, publications
    (please do not send more than 3 tapes/CDs and 1-2 scores)

  4. Filmmakers / Video Artists / Photographers

    video tapes (VHS or S-VHS), scripts, photographic material
    (please do not send more than 2-3 tapes, 1-2 scripts, 12 slides / photos)

All material sent in must be marked with name and year of origin; it will be returned after the selection has been made. Künstlerhaus Schloss Wiepersdorf can not assume any responsibility for submitted materials. Successful applicants' documentation material will be retained in the archives of Künstlerhaus Schloss Wiepersdorf.

For the handling of your consignment a flat fee of 15,- € is charged. Please enclose this amount either in cash (no cheques) or in the form of 10 international reply coupons. Consignments without this enclosure will not be taken into consideration. In certain justified cases, there is a possibility to be exempted from the payment. For this we need a written request before you send in your material.

Künstlerhaus Schloss Wiepersdorf
