Through our periodic Open Call, we accept applications from individuals in all creative pursuits, unrestricted by nationality, discipline or age.

We are now accepting applications on line for two-month Fellowships to be awarded between 8 April 2019 and 13 January 2020.  Individuals of all nationalities, working in all disciplines and of any age, may apply.  Applications must be submitted electronically.

To submit an application, go to sacatar.slideroom.com. After you sign up, you will receive an email confirming that you can log in. When you log in, you will find all the information you will need to complete an application. There are three steps to the application:

  1. Fill out the application form

  2. Upload recent examples of your work

  3. Pay the application fee of US$35.00 and hit SUBMIT

You can ‘SAVE AND EXIT’ as many times as you like before you submit your application.  Once you submit, you can make no further corrections or changes.

The deadline for all applications is July 30, 2018.  

We will announce the results in October 2018, before we begin to interview the semi-finalists.  We conduct interviews with all semi-finalists before scheduling.  Through this Open Selection Process, we will offer 14-20 Fellowships between 8 April 2019 and 13 January 2020.

Former Fellows may not apply.  We will continue to offer alternate ways that former Fellows may return to pursue additional work at Sacatar.  We will write our former Fellows directly with these opportunities.


In addition to our unrestricted Open Call, opportunities to come to the Instituto Sacatar are available through our partner organizations. These additional opportunities are often restricted by nationality, discipline and/or age.

Please go to DEADLINES to see which programs currently have ongoing applications.
