TRANSART INSTITUTE announced today that three scholarships of USD 15000 each are available for students from Eastern Europe and developing countries and six scholarships of 2000 and 1000 USD respectively are available to students from anywhere to participate in the international MFA program. In the highly individualized low-residency MFA program students create their own course of study working on art and research projects off-site with the support of faculty and self-chosen artist mentors. The independent study is complemented by three intensive summer residencies where lectures, critiques, seminars, performances, exhibitions, and workshops take place on-site in Europe. The low-residency format permits continuing a professional life while participating in the program.
