Application procedure
All fellowships are announced publicly.

It is not possible to apply for a Balmoral residence fellowship and a fellowship for artists with relation to Rhineland-Palatinate in the same year. Applications for a Balmoral residence fellowship are only allowed for four or eight month.
The decision on the award of the fellowships will be made by a panel of experts in consideration of the applicants’ capability of further developing their artistic work. 
There is no legal claim to obtaining a fellowship.
The applicants will not receive any reasons in writing for the decision made on the awarding of the fellowships, but will be informed of the result; preferable by e-mail.
Applicants who were not accepted are not allowed to apply in the following year neither for the same nor another fellowship. They may apply again for a maximum of two further Balmoral residence fellowships.

 An application will not be accepted if the same fellowship has already been awarded to that candidate.
