Zygote NEO Residency Scholarship

Zygote’s NEO Residency Scholarship is offered to a graduating printmaking student (either undergraduate or graduate) from a northeast Ohio university. This award offers graduates the opportunity for an open-access, three-month, residency at Zygote Press to be used within a year of awarding. The residency includes full access to the shop, locker and flat file storage, access to  materials/equipment, inclusion in Zygote’s archive collection and discounts on classes and workshops. We urge all graduating graduate and undergraduate printmaking students to apply. It is possible for applicants who will be attending graduate school in the fall to utilize the three month residency during the summer before they start school.

The yearly application deadline is April 1st. The winner will be notified within 2 weeks of the deadline. If you have any questions regarding the residency program or application, please contact yana (at) Zygotepress.org
