sustainable arts foundation parent fellowship

Thanks to generous support from the Sustainable Arts Foundation, AS220 is pleased to extend one Sustainable Arts Foundation Parent Fellowship for a parent to attend the Spring 2018 session of Practice//Practice, AS220’s professional development program for arts managers and administrators! We believe that it’s important to make this in-person learning available to everyone and recognize that attending the program may pose significant challenges for participants with children. 

The Sustainable Arts Foundation Parent Fellowship awarded will cover $750 in tuition, $250 for childcare while the recipient attends the program, and up $1,000 as needed to subsidize transportation and lodging costs.

Tuition:
Fellowship recipients will not be expected to pay any tuition costs. The amount of $750 will go directly to AS220 from the Sustainable Arts Foundation to cover the tuition cost of the awardee.

Childcare:
$250 for childcare will be issued directly to the Parent Fellowship awardee to help cover childcare costs while the recipient attends the program. Financial need for childcare should be expressed in the Fellowship application. Awardees will not be expected to submit receipts.

Transportation:
Parent Fellowship awardees may apply for funds to subsidize or cover the cost of ground and/or air transportation. If applying for transportation, fellowship recipients will be required to submit reservation confirmations and may be reimbursed for the amount as quoted or indicated on receipt. Transportation and lodging funds may be requested up to the amount of $1,000 (combined total).

Lodging:
We are committed to helping traveling fellowship recipients find the right accommodations if they are traveling and wish to bring their families. AS220 works in partnership with the Dean Hotel, which is conveniently located directly adjacent to AS220’s Mercantile and Dreyfus buildings. The Dean offers guests of AS220 discounted rates and has a variety of rooms available including bunk bed rooms designed specifically for families. We are also available to assist in determining the best Airbnb options in safe and walkable neighborhoods suitable to their needs. If applying for lodging funds, fellowship recipients will be required to submit reservation confirmations and may be reimbursed for the amount amount as quoted or indicated on receipt. As mentioned above, lodging and transportation funds may be requested up to the amount of $1,000 (combined total).

Meals:
Breakfast and lunch during each full day are included in the cost of tuition, as is the welcome dinner. Partners and families are welcome to join the group for meals at no extra cost.

Schedule Flexibility:
Practice//Practice also offers parents traveling with children and families flexibility. We will work with each fellowship recipient directly to indicate which sessions are core to the programs (not to be missed) and which are particularly family friendly (such as the art-making sessions).
