What is the Fulbright-Harriet Hale Woolley Scholarship?

The Fulbright program and the Fondation des États-Unis (FEU) – via the Harriet Hale Woolley Scholarship – launched a new partnership program in 2019 to fully fund an American musician and an American visual artist each year in Paris. The program aims to provide the best possible environment for the artists to work on their project for a full academic year. Along with a monthly stipend, grantees are offered free access to a studio at the FEU. They also actively participate in the rich cultural program of the FEU.

Grantees must fulfill both the Fulbright and Harriet Hale Woolley eligibility criteria.

The Scholarship

As well as the Fulbright stipend, awardees will be given a free live-in atelier or music studio at the FEU. Musicians have access to rehearsal studios and to the concert hall; artists can show their work in the private art gallery.

Applicants are encouraged to establish contact with specialists in their field before applying for a grant, and to solicit invitations to study under them. Although the Fulbright Commission in France prefers affiliation with an accredited institution, applicants may be authorized to study with private teachers.

The application for the Fulbright-Harriet Hale Woolley award must be made through the IIE website.
