The Claire Rosen and Samuel Edes Foundation was founded in 1986 with the broad mandate of supporting projects to benefit education and the arts, to alleviate poverty and unemployment, and to promote initiatives in the areas of human and civil rights, health and nutrition services, housing, and international peace and security.For eight years (2010-2017), the Edes Foundation Prize for Emerging Artists provided a significant annual cash award for a graduating senior, graduate student, or recent alumnus/a of each of four Chicago institutions– to be used by the awardee in any arts discipline in any way that enabled them to advance their professional career in the arts. The four participating Chicago institutions were the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, DePaul University, Northwestern University, and the University of Chicago. Each school received a substantial stipend to distribute to a single artist or artist team as they saw fit, based on a selection process tailored to the school’s own criteria and standards. Every year produced a class of four Edes Awardees, who used that year to further their artistic practice at a crucial stage of development.
