2020 Fellowships and Residencies
In 2017, garden writer Adrian Higgins penned an article for the Washington Post, "Opening the door to a place of plants and privilege," in which he described the Oak Spring Garden Foundation's "ambitious plans to share its wealth of knowledge." Every day in our work we recognize the privilege of the gifts granted to OSGF in its founding – the beautiful Oak Spring estate and the singular Oak Spring Garden Library.
We are excited to share these gifts by offering robust and meaningful programming to artists and scholars of diverse backgrounds and disciplines.
We are now accepting applications for our Artist in Residence and Scholars in Residence Programs along with our early career fellowships. Finalists will be given the opportunity to join our Residency Programs and the top applicant in each respective program will be awarded the Eliza Moore Fellowship for Artistic Excellence and the Stacy Lloyd III Fellowship for Bibliographic Study – awards of $10,000 each.
Additionally, we are announcing and accepting applications for our inaugural Oak Spring Fellows in Plant Biology and Conservation, an award of $10,000.
