Application Instructions

The STARS Residencies application for the 2015-16 school year will open at 3:30pm (ET) on Tuesday, September 29, 2015.

Residencies may start November 9 and after. Applications will be reviewed in the order received and funding notifications made by November 6.

Join MCC's email list to receive future announcements regarding this program. (Be sure to select the "Youth Programs News" option.)

Before the application goes live you can:

  1. Read the program guidelines and FAQs.

  2. Preview a sample application PDF.

    We recommend that you develop your narrative in word processing software and then copy and paste it in the appropriate narrative boxes in the application form.

    Before you copy and paste responses from word processing software into the online application, save the file as "text only." After you've entered the text, be sure to click "View PDF” at the bottom of the screen to make sure your narrative looks the way you want it to and is complete.

  3. Create an organizational profile to eventually be able to access the online application, if you don't already have one.

Questions? See the FAQs, then contact Diane Daily (617-858-2709).

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.
