Scholarship and Fellowships in Painting 2012
Deadline: January 13th 2012
Application Fee: £ 25
Abbey Awards are open to citizens of the UK and the US. Abbey Awards are also open to painters of other nationalities provided they have been resident in the UK or US for at least five years.
The Abbey Scholarship offers an early-career painter a full academic year (October to June) at the British School at Rome.
The Abbey Fellowships offer mid-career painters three months at the School during the same period.
There is no age limit.
Application and further information
Completed applications must arrive with the Administrator no later than 18:00 on Friday January 13th 2012 (postmarked that date is not acceptable). US candidates should mail their applications well ahead of the deadline and use the US postal system (not private couriers e.g. FedEx, UPS etc. that attract customs and other fees payable on arrival which will not be paid by Abbey).
Shortlisting will take place in London during early February and candidates will be notified whether or not they have been shortlisted by the end of February
Interviews will be held in London in the first half of March. Candidates from the USA may be interviewed by telephone, but experience suggests that they have a better chance of success if they come to London for the interview.
