The stipend for collectives is 1,000 euro per person, but a maximum of 3,000 euro minus rent and operating costs. Travel, insurance or material costs will only be covered in exceptional cases (in case of scholarship approval and need, please contact us).

The period of the residency, with a duration between two to six months, can be chosen according to agreement and availability. The fellowship requires that the grant holders reside and work at Künstlerdorf during the period of the residency.

During the stay, the premises and infrastructure of the Künstlerdorf can be used. The fellowship is not designed as a production fellowship and there is no obligation to present work results. However, there is the possibility to use exhibition and presentation facilities. In addition, we welcome the voluntary co-organization of events, in the form of lectures, readings, workshops or the like.


The selection of fellows is made by expert juries according to the following criteria and weighting: quality of the previous work, quality and plausibility of the project for Schöppingen, program contributions (interaction / community building).
