Kate and Robert Taylor Scholarship in Visual Arts

Kate and Robert Taylor Scholarship in Visual Arts - Award specifically for Practicum Students

Awarded annually to an undergraduate student entering Year 4 of the Bachelor of Fine Arts (Studio) program based on academic achievement and a student statement of intent. The application must include the artist's CV and artist's statement as well as a high-level outline (max 500 words) of the student's proposed Practicum art project, including Medium, a synopsis of their vision, what they are trying to communicate to the audience and how they visualise audience engagement. Submissions can be made to the undergraduate office in Visual Arts (prefer email submission as of September 2020). The Scholarship and Awards Committee in the Department of Visual Arts will select the receipent. This award was established by a generous gift from Kate Taylor, abstract artist, BFA'87 and Robert Taylor, BA’87 (Honours Economics), who seek to support Studio students enabling them to fulfil their vision relating to their practicum. Kate and Rob hope that, by providing support for expenses including, but not limited to, art supplies, marketing and promotion, Studio artists can build a body of work that will help propel them successfully into the art community post-graduation.
