The Foundation does not provide any grants itself. It rents out flats and studios to academies, other foundations and institutions that in turn award grants for residencies at the Hôtel Chevillon. Below is a list of organisations currently affiliated with the Foundation. The funding organisations’ target groups represent a wide spectrum of artistic and scientific disciplines, which makes the Hôtel Chevillion an exciting and stimulating place in which to work.
