Meals and travel expenses are not included, though grocery deliveries are available. Residents must also provide their own transportation. The cost of the residency is $300 per week, plus a heating fee during winter months. Submit a completed application form, which includes a writing sample of five to 10 pages, a short curriculum vitae, a project statement, and three references.
