Emmanuel College awards a $1000 dollar stipend for supplies and up to an additional $500 for travel reimbursement.

ECAR provides time and tools for residents to focus on their artistic practice. Artists have access to studios from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. and are provided with on-campus accommodations. Artists are responsible for their meals.

Each artist donates one artwork to the college at the conclusion of the residency. This work will become part of Emmanuel College's permanent art collection. They will be used as a teaching tool as well as to culturally enrich campus life.

Resident artists are expected to give one presentation regarding their own artistic practice to the Emmanuel community.

Artists may be invited back for a presentation of their work to Emmanuel students during the following academic year. The date will be coordinated with the faculty member in the corresponding area.
