The Science, Culture and Sport Ministry will award five Israelis with the opportunity to strengthen their artistic skills in Paris's artists quarter over the course of six months. A team of judges will choose the grant recipients from among painters, sculptors, photographers, designers and musicians. The winners will have to provide their own transportation, living and housing costs. To be eligible, applicants must be Israeli citizens living in Israel that have been active in an artistic profession for at least three years and have taken part in at least three exhibits (not at a school). Musicians must have been active for a minimum of five years. More information is available at www.most.gov.il.
