Cologne wants to fund scholarships that focus on contemporary art and the free expression of young artists. Young authors are awarded with the Rolf-Dieter-Brinkmann-scholarship once a year and receive 10.000€.
The scholarship is only for young authors who can supply convincing evidence of their career. Alternatively it can be awarded to projects that are worthy of support or hard to finance. Applicants must life and work in North Rhine-Westphalia and cannot be older than 35 years.
