The Graduate Scholarship Programme, now in its sixth year, is open for applications for the 2020/2021 cohort.
The 12 month scheme, managed by the University of Salford Art Collection in collaboration with Castlefield Gallery, supports artists in the crucial first year after graduation – providing time, space and resources to continue developing a professional contemporary practice.
The bespoke programme includes studio space in Salford with one of our partners: Hot Bed Press, Islington Mill, Paradise Works, Mirabel Studios support from Redeye The Photography Network – alongside mentoring and cash for materials, travel, or other costs.
The scheme is only open to University of Salford final year undergraduates from the School of Arts and Media (who are due to graduate or complete their studies in July 2020) – plus this year we are piloting one space for an MA graduate (due to graduate or complete in September 2020).
