Grants available to recent Loughborough Fine Art graduates

Applications are now open to 2019 and 2020 graduates of Loughborough’s BA Fine Art degree for two £10,000 Fellowships to study a one-year programme at the University.

In partnership with the Artists' Benevolent Fund (ABF), the Step Change Programme provides sponsorships to artists in England and Wales to help to launch, sustain and develop their careers.

The Fellowships are open to recent graduates who are looking to pursue a professional career as an artist, and have been set up to support artists who are facing difficulty in developing their career or embarking on an artistic career full-time.

The successful applicants will receive £10,000 cash from the ABF as well as access to a range of facilities including studio space in Fine Art, support from academic, technical and professional staff, and a £250 materials budget. In addition, ABF will give each Fellow a grant to help them develop international opportunities and the University will give free access to trips visiting art galleries and museums.

Professor Cees de Bont, Dean, School of Design and Creative Arts stated:

"This is an incredible opportunity to further develop creative talents and to make your mark by showcasing the work to a wide audience of art lovers."

Fellowships will commence on 5 October 2020 for one year, based in Fine Art at the University.
