The AusArt Fellowship

Supporting Australian visual arts students in America

 

The AusArt Fellowship was created to offer a tangible and meaningful experience to an Australian student in the visual arts field to continue his or her studies in the United States. It is hoped that over time the Fellowship will nurture a reservoir of talent that will benefit the wider arts community. The AusArt Fellowship is made possible through the generous support of the Dr. Lee MacCormick Edwards Charitable Foundation, and AFNGA’s education partners, the American Australian Association.

The Fellowship offers artists, curators, art historians, administrators and conservators the opportunity to further their chosen field of study at an American university, educational institution or museum. The Fellowship consists of an annual grant of US$30,000, which must be used by the successful applicant to further his or her education in the United States.

The American Friends of the National Gallery of Australia, in partnership with the American Australian Association, invites Australian Graduate and Post Graduate students to apply for the AusArt Fellowship.

See the Application page for dates and details on how to apply for the AusArt Fellowship.
