In 2003 the Culture Committee in the municipality of Luleå founded a scholarship for graduating artists from the Art-Universtities in the Nordic countries – who wants to move to the region of Norrbotten and the municipality of Luleå to work as an artist.
The scholarship contains a free studio in one year in between the first of September until the last of august the forthcoming year. The cultural committee is also bound to buy a work of art from the holder of the scholarship to a value of 15000 SEK – produced during the time of the scholarship. The artist is also offered the possibility of having an exhibition in the art hall in Kulturens hus (the House of Culture) after the time for the scholarship. The scholarship jury is composed of the artistic director of Konsthallen (the Art Hall) and two local artists.
The studio is in the same building as Konstnärernas kollektivverkstad, KKV (the artists collective studios, www.kkvlulea.se) in the Kronan-area in Luleå. The floor above the collective studios contains separate artist studios among which the scholarship studio is one.
