Grants to participate in the Summer Academy at the Salzburg University of Fine Arts



Some 80 grants, usually covering participation fees only, are available for participation in one of the classes at the Summer Academy. Additional subsidies for travel and living costs are offered by others.

Closing date for all grant applications is 3 April 2019.

The Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts, founded in 1953 by Oskar Kokoschka as the “School of Vision”, in Hohensalzburg Fortress, is the oldest of its kind in Europe. Every year, some 300 participants from more than 50 countries attend around 20 courses.

The grant application also counts as the application for a class, so need not be made separately.
