The Helen Lempriere Travelling Art Scholarship of $60,000 is offered each year by the NSW government, with the generous support of the Helen Lempriere Bequest.

The key focus of the program must be international but it may also include national activities. The Scholarship is intended for emerging artists. To be eligible to apply, applicants ust be within the first 8 years of professional practice as a visual artist.

* study, training or residencies (including short-term courses or workshops), at recognised institutions / organisations;
and / or
* mentorships or internships with recognised professional artists.
