The M.E. Prigge grant is dedicated to the artist Maria Elisabeth Prigge (1948–2007), who directed the painting classes of the International Summer Academy of Fine Arts on the island of La Gomera from 1997 to 1999, as well as the 2003 and 2005 graphic arts classes in Hohensalzburg Fortress. It is intended for young talented artists to participate in a graphic arts course (engraving, drawing, etc.), and is financed by friends of the artist. It is not possible to apply specifically for this grant; applications take place through the process described in section 1.
The Bisi Silva Grant is dedicated to the founding director of the CCA (Center for Contemporary Art) in Lagos, Nigeria, who died, far too early, in January 2019. Through her initiative, co-operation with the Summer Academy has been carried on since 2012, awarding several students from African countries grants for participation in our courses. The Society of Friends has now established a grant dedicated to Bisi Silva, one of the most important figures in the African art world. The number of grants depends annually on the sum raised. A grant covers fees as well as travel and accommodation expenses for students nominated by the CCA in Lagos and selected by the Summer Academy jury.
