Bequeathed to the Fondation des États-Unis in the early 1930s, the Harriet Hale Woolley Scholarship is awarded annually to a select number of exceptional American artists and musicians who plan to pursue their studies in Paris. A scholarship is also available to one French, Swiss or American medical post-graduate specializing in psychiatry with an internship in a Parisian hospital.
The scholarship is awarded to a maximum of five American post-graduate students in visual fine arts (painting, graphic design, print-making, sculpture, photography) and music (composition, instrumental or vocal performance). The scholarship is not intended for research in art history or musicology, nor for dance or theater.
In order to apply for the scholarship, candidates must:
* possess American citizenship
* be between 21 and 29 years of age

propose a unique and detailed artistic project related to their field of study which requires a one-year residency in Paris. This project should include enrollment in a recognized French art or music school.

In the field of the visual arts, it is possible to submit an application with a letter from a tutor/mentor who will advise and guide the artist in the realization of their creative project.
