Can I apply to the Rauschenberg Residency in Captiva? 
The selection process for the Rauschenberg Residency is by invitation only. At this time, there is no application process.  Selectors, who represent cultural and artistic diversity, anonymously identify artists and other creative thinkers, emerging and recognized, from a variety of backgrounds, disciplines and geographies to create a diverse mix of participants for seven annual residencies.
 
Can I apply to the Rauschenberg Foundation Archives Research Residency?

What is the difference between the Rauschenberg Residency in Captiva and the Rauschenberg Foundation Archives Research Residency?
The Robert Rauschenberg Foundation Archives Research Residency and the Rauschenberg Residency in Captiva are independent programs. The Robert Rauschenberg Foundation Archives Research Residency provides partial support exclusively for research onsite at the Rauschenberg Foundation in New York and does not provide housing or space to create work. Rauschenberg Residency in Captiva hosts artists of all disciplines from around the world to live, work, and create at Robert Rauschenberg’s former property on Captiva Island, Florida. Participation in one residency does not include participation in the other.
