Bequest offers talented artists a travelling scholarship

Arts scholarships worth $160,000 in total are currently on offer from The Trust Company, an Australian trustee company.

The 2013 Marten Bequest Travelling Scholarships are open to candidates who show outstanding ability and promise in the fields of acting, painting, singing or sculpture, are aged between 21-35 years old and Australian born.

Eight scholarships are available, with each winner to receive $20,000. This is to assist with study programs, training courses and/or mentor programs related to their discipline through travelling either abroad or interstate.

Some notable past winners include writer Tim Winton, artist Wendy Sharpe and opera singer Amelia Farrugia.

The scholarships were established by John Chisholm Marten (1908-1966), a theatrical artist, so talented Australians could develop their artistic gifts.

Applications close on November 26, 2012, with the winners to be announced in February 2013. To apply, go to www.martenbequest.com.au.
