Application Instructions

The STARS Residencies application for the 2018-19 school year will open at 4pm (ET) on Wednesday, October 10, 2018.

We encourage you to submit your online application as quickly as possible after it opens. Applications are reviewed in the order in which they are submitted, as long as funds last. Schools may submit only one application for one residency per school year. Applications are reviewed within five weeks of submission.

  1. Review the Guidelines and FAQs.


  2. Create an organizational profile for the school before October 10 to be able to access the online application. You will need an Organizational Profile - not an Individual Profile- to access the online application. (Please note: Usernames/Passwords created for previously-submitted STARS applications can be used.)


  3. Apply Now.

NOTE: Residencies may not start before November 12, 2018.

STARS Residencies (Students and Teachers working with Artists, Scientists, and Scholars) provides grants of $500-$5,000 to schools to support creative learning residencies of three days or more in the arts, sciences, and humanities.
