The application process is free and open to all. Incomplete applications will not be considered.

The cost of the residency program is €1500 for the one month period. We encourage artists to consider staying more than one month in order to gain a deeper understanding of Athens as a cultural hub. For 2019, we are offering 10% off the second month and 20% off the third consecutive month.

The Athena Standards Residency is open year round, with residency periods of one to twelve months. We are currently accepting applications for all sessions in 2019, on a rolling basis. The residency will be closed the month of August. 

All applications are reviewed by our International Selection Committee on a monthly basis, in the order they are received. Artists will be notified by the fifteenth of each month as to the status of their application. Applications for each residency period will close on the first day of the month, two months before the residency period begins:

Selection does not secure a spot, only the submission of the deposit; 35% of the residency fee, secures the reservation. Incoming artists-in-residence will be sent a letter of acceptance and a contract with the deadlines for their residency session, which must be signed and returned.

Early application is encouraged; early applicants have a greater opportunity to select their studio of choice, as well as their preferred months. The residency fee is refundable at 50% up until one month before the residency session begins.
