Applicants must show a continued commitment to the visual arts and should have received some professional recognition.

To be eligible, applicants must be either a U.S. citizen of Korean ancestry, Korean with permanent residency status in the U.S., or otherwise approved by the board. Applicants may not be enrolled as a full-time student at the time of application.

There is a $30 application fee for this opportunity.
