The Virginia Center for the Creative Arts (VCCA) is accepting applications from writers, visual artists, and composers for Summer 2024 residencies at Mt. San Angelo in the foothills of Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains. Residencies of varying lengths with flexible scheduling are available May through August of next year. All residencies at Mt. San Angelo include a private bedroom with en-suite bath, a separate private studio, and three prepared meals each day.

Life at VCCA is free of many of the distractions we find in everyday life. Artists are granted solitary time to focus on their work, and are also part of a collaborative community of accomplished artists that provides insights, new ideas, and stimulating conversation. VCCA Fellows are free to work at their own pace in quiet, spacious, light-filled studios.

Fellowships and Financial Assistance: Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, VCCA is proud to offer a rotating selection of fully-funded fellowships. At each deadline, applicants will be considered for a VCCA residency and as many fully-funded fellowships for which they are eligible. In addition to fully-funded fellowships, significant financial assistance is available throughout the year. All eligible applicants demonstrating financial need are considered for financial aid funding to help cover the cost of their residency.

Application Fee Waivers: If the $30 application fee presents a hardship, applicants should reach out to Artists Services at to request an application fee waiver at least 5 days before the application deadline.
