There’s just one week left to apply for the Canadian Art Foundation Editorial Residency, a $7,000 award and mentorship program for Canadian post-secondary students. Applications are due at the Canadian Art Foundation offices on April 6, 2012.
The Canadian Art Foundation Editorial Residency is a national prize awarded annually to a current undergraduate, graduate or other post-secondary student with an interest in developing expertise in the realm of professional art-magazine publishing.
