The Trust Company is the proud Trustee for the Marten Bequest Travelling Scholarships, a scholarship programme that supports young Australian artists to help their careers flourish.
There are two weeks left to apply for one of three $20,000 scholarships. Scholarships are on offer to aspiring young ballet artists who have a passion for travel in order to enhance their talents. Please forward this on to your students, colleagues, members who are between the ages of 17-35 years and looking to further their career through travel.
John Chisholm Marten set up the scholarship programme through his will in 1964, and the scholarships have been awarded since 1975. John Marten was a theatrical artist who understood the importance of travel to boost the experiences of aspiring artists.
Applicants must be Australian born and be available for travel in the event their applications are successful and a scholarship be awarded to them, which can include both international and domestic travel.
The judges will base their decisions on both the quality of work submitted, and a well thought out plan on how such a scholarship will help the applicant to take the next step in their career. Full details on how to apply for the scholarship can be found here.
Applications, including examples of work, must be submitted online by 2 December 2013. This is a fantastic opportunity to help promote our local artists and encourage them to explore their talents, so please circulate this information amongst your networks and contact us using the details below if you require any additional promotional materials which we would be happy to provide.
