SCAD Alumni Atelier recipients are awarded up to $25,000 for travel costs, meals, supplies and honoraria, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the agreement.
SCAD’s new Alumni Atelier program invites SCAD graduates to return to their home base for inspiration, peace of mind and funding while they create a new art piece.
The idea for the Alumni Atelier program came straight from SCAD president, Paula Wallace, who personally jumpstarted the program and has funded it to date. Atelier Program Coordinator, Grace Grund said, “President Wallace is always thinking about the students and how to best help them nurture new ideas.”
The program unofficially began in the summer of 2015 at SCAD’s Lacoste, France campus and was permanently established at the Atlanta and Savannah campuses this fall. The eight-week residency program begins when a SCAD alumnus (or a small team of alumni) submits a request and their project proposal to the program, both of which are reviewed by professors and staff.
