The Foundation provides a full-year grant supporting an artist Apprenticeship fellow at the Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico (MAPR) in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The grant is renewable for a second year contingent upon results and impact achieved.

The Foundation also sponsors two photographer-in-residence programs. One program, at Light Work, a non-profit photography organization supporting artists since 1973 provides one month of onsite residency for a photographer. The second program, at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, provides two months for a photographer to focus on a project of their choice. The Foundation provides mentors to both the Light Work artists-in-residence and the photographer-in-residence at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art.
