Application Checklist

Please review the following list carefully before submitting an application.

Due to the large demand for this program, applications that don't adhere to the guidelines will unfortunately be disqualified.

  • I have at least one child under the age of 18. Parents of older children with a disability or special needs may also be eligible.
  • I have read the application guidelines carefully.
  • I have carefully reviewed the portfolio requirements for the discipline I work in.
  • All submitted work was created since I became a parent, and within the last 5 years.
  • I have not included my name on any of my application materials. Artists' signatures are ok.

Preparing Your Application Offline

We strongly urge you to prepare your artist statement and portfolio materials offline. Computers crash, internet connections hang. We'd hate for you to lose your work due to a technical glitch.

  • Create a folder on your computer specific to this application (e.g. "SAF Application")
  • Prepare your artist statement in a word processing document saved in this folder
  • Copy the PDFs and/or images that comprise your portfolio into this folder
  • Copy-and-paste the Artist Statement into our form and upload your portfolio materials
