Application to NYSRP is open to upper-level undergraduate and graduate students working in the visual arts in a wide range of disciplines and genres from the participating Association of Independent Colleges of Art and Design (AICAD) member schools.

You are eligible to apply if you are currently enrolled at a participating AICAD school as a 3rd year or 4th year undergraduate student, or as a graduate student majoring in fine arts, related visual arts, photography, graphic arts or design.

You are not eligible to apply if your AICAD school is located in New York City (SVA, Cooper Union, Parsons and Pratt).

    My overall experience of participating in this program has given me the freedom/burden to create self-directed art and learn from my own mistakes for discoveries and improvements to enhance my personal art practice. The Dumbo area accommodates this experience by being a very safe and lively environment for such a study and practice to flourish.
