In 1990 Wendy W. Luers, founder and director of Foundation for a Civil Society, together with President Vaclav Havel and a group of dissident artists first established the Jindrich Chalupecky Award in Czechoslovakia to recognize artistic excellence in young visual artists, under 35 years old, and provide them with a U.S. residency experience.

The Young Visual Artists Awards program was established over several years as an international network of similar awards with support from the Trust forMutual Understanding, a US foundation. Today 10 European countries are part of this network: Czech Republic, Slovakia, Croatia, Kosovo, Serbia, Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Slovenia, Albania and Bulgaria. In 2015, Residency Unlimited (RU) was engaged as the organizer of the YVAA program and host of the NY residency program.
