Samstag International Visual Arts Scholarships

Medium / category: All mediums

Eligibility: Australian art students, recent graduates and graduates of more than five years standing

The annual Samstag Scholarships enable Australian artists to develop their artistic capacities and skills through a dedicated period of practice-based learning in an international learning institution.

The scholarship provides each artist with institutional fees for one academic year of study and a $70,000 tax free allowance and covers travel expenses to a leading international art school of their choice. The competitive national scholarship program, established in 1991, is open to students, recent graduates–and, for the first time since its inception–to applicants who have been graduates of more than five years standing.
