The Robert Louis Stevenson Fellowship is an annual award that allows professional writers living in Scotland to enjoy a month-long residency at the Hôtel Chevillon International Arts Centre at Grez-sur-Loing in France with a stipend of £1,200. Each year, four writers are invited to spend time with other artists and absorb fresh cultural experiences.

Robert Louis Stevenson frequently visited the Hôtel Chevillon during the 1870s (he even met his future wife, Fanny Osbourne, there) and the hotel continues to offer a fantastic working environment for artists and writers, via The Stiftelsen Foundation.

About Grez-sur-Loing

Grez-sur-Loing is situated at the edge of the Forest of Fontainebleau, France, and was chosen because of its connections with Robert Louis Stevenson, who first visited in 1875. It was there, at the Hôtel Chevillon, that he met his future wife, Fanny Osbourne. Stevenson found both the place and its well-established community of writers and artists highly attractive, and he returned to Grez-sur-Loing for three successive summers.

Hôtel Chevillon is run by The Stiftelsen Foundation in Sweden.
