Starr fellowship 
The Starr fellowship is an artist’s residency at the Royal Academy Schools, the Royal Academy of Arts’ school of contemporary fine art in London. The fellowship is available to emerging American artists and the core of the programme is the development of the artist’s own work in their studio. The fellowship also offers opportunities to contribute to group critiques on our postgraduate programme.

The Starr fellowship runs from October 2015 and ends in July 2016. The successful candidate is provided with a private studio located in the RA schools and a stipend of 12,000 GBP. This is an opportunity for an artist with US citizen status to create work within the RA Schools for an academic year, culminating with a show at the RA schools in July.

The Starr fellowship is made possible through the support of the Starr Foundation, which was established in 1955 by Cornelius Vander Starr, an insurance entrepreneur who founded C.V. Starr & Co. and other companies. Later these companies were merged by Starr’s successor Maurice R. Greenberg into what became the American International Group Inc. Mr. Starr, a pioneer of globalisation, set up his first insurance venture in Shanghai in 1919. He died in 1968 at the age of 76, leaving his estate to the Starr Foundation.
