In exchange, the program allows artists from the countries of our partnering institutions to enjoy a month-long residency at the Künstlerhaus Lukas free of charge. We have a total of 20 places for this each year. In addition to this, artists from the countries bordering the Baltic Sea, Iceland, Norway, the UK and Ireland can send their applications directly to the Künstlerhaus Lukas.
The scholarships are usually endowed with 1000 euros, including travel expenses. Scholarship funding is provided by the respective countries. If the artist's own country is not able to provide funding, the artist will receive up to 300 euros compensation for their travel expenses. The residency at the Künstlerhaus Lukas is free of charge.
