Application Instructions

The STARS Residencies online application for the 2016-2017 school year opens at 4:00 pm on Thursday, October 6, 2016. 

Residencies may start November 14 and after. Applications will be reviewed in the order received and funding notifications made by November 11.

Before the application goes live you can:

  1. Read the program guidelines and FAQs.
  2. Preview a sample application PDF and an application form PDF.
  3. Create a user profile to eventually be able to access the online application. We strongly recommend that you create a user profile in advance. Note: the user profile is about the school. Be sure to click “Organization” on the user profile.

STARS Residencies has a rolling deadline - applications are reviewed in the order in which they are submitted, as long as funds last. Schools are eligible for one residency grant per school per school year. Applications are reviewed within six weeks of submission.
