Visual art awards at British School at Rome

Website: http://www.bsr.ac.uk/awards/fine-arts#Hill

Visual art awards at the BSR offer artists at different stages of their careers the superb opportunity to research and focus on their work away from normal pressures, and to use the BSR as a base to explore Rome and Italy. Awards include board and accommodation, award-holders are required to live at the BSR throughout the period of the award. There are two scholarships currently open for applications:

Derek Hill Foundation Scholarship 2019-20:  This Scholarship is funded by the Derek Hill Foundation and it aims to encourage artists for whom the use of paint and/or drawing is central to their practice. This scholarship runs from Late September-December 2019 and the chosen artist will receive a research and travel grant of approx. £950 per month. Applicants must be over the age 24 on 1 September 2019 and be of British or Irish nationality.

Sainsbury Scholarship in Painting & Sculpture 2019-20: This Scholarship is supported by the Linbury Trust and is open to promising and ambitious painters and sculptors of outstanding potential. This scholarship runs from Late September 2019-September 2020 and the chosen artist will receive a research grant of approx. £800 per month, plus a grant for travel in Italy of £1,200. Applicants must be under 32 on 1 October 2019, have graduated in fine art (or expect to have graduated in fine art before 1 October 2019) and must be of British nationality, or have been working professionally or studying at postgraduate level for at least the last 5 years in the UK (i.e. since January 2013).
