The Rijksakademie is partly supported by the Dutch government. The Rijksakademie Trust Fund—in cooperation with the Rijksakademie and resident artists—raises additional funds from private and governmental foundations, corporations and private donors, both nationally and internationally. Every resident artist is asked to raise a Fellowship of € 15,000, preferably in their home country. Selected candidates will be provided with more information after the interview round.
