Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship

The Brett Whiteley Studio, administered by the Art Gallery of New South Wales, awards an annual travelling art scholarship to a talented artist aged 20-30 with an established body of work who is best able to demonstrate the use and benefit of the scholarship to further their art education in Europe.

Mrs Beryl Whiteley (1917–2010) generously allocated funds for the scholarship in memory of her son, Brett Whiteley, both to encourage excellence in painting and to offer young artists the same opportunity to develop their careers as were afforded to her son.
The scholarship consists of $40,000 and a three-month residency at the Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris, which is administered by the Gallery.
The $40,000 must be used by the successful applicant to further their art education in Europe for at least six months (including the three-month Cité residency) at the specified time.

To be considered for selection, an applicant must comply with all entry instructions and conditions.
Scholarship residency period: continuous occupancy July – September 2018
Applicant eligibility period: born between 8 July 1986 and 8 July 1997 (inclusive, an Australian citizen since at least 8 July 2015, and living in Australia between 7 July and 13 October 2017)
