Casa de Velázquez in Madrid is offering financial aid to students, young artists and PhD researchers from France and other countries, whose work requires them to stay in the Iberian Peninsula. The period covered is from one to three consecutive months for artists and one month for PhD researchers; financial aid is paid in monthly installments.

There are two separate programmes to apply to. For Académie de France à Madrid, candidates must have registered in a school of higher education and must submit a project of artistic creation. For l’École des hautes études hispaniques et ibériques, candidates must have a PhD and must submit a project relevant to any of the research fields favoured by the institution.

Casa de Velázquez is offering the following for interested applicants:

• Researchers can receive a monthly payment of €1,250 and are given priority for accommodation in Casa de Velázquez if they wish to stay there (€500 per month, deducted from the amount paid to recipients, so the total received will be €750). Artists will receive the same amount but must stay in the accommodation at Casa de Velázquez.
• An extra €350 will be awarded to researchers and artists enrolled in
a school of higher education with its headquarters in Maghreb or Latin America. This amount must be approved by the Board of Casa de Velázquez.
