Two scholarships will be awarded by the New English Art Club to emerging artists with the most promising portfolios

The Scholarships run for one year and enable the recipients to attend all classes and workshops run by the New English Education Programme free of charge. The Scholars are encouraged to visit New English artists in their studio environments and develop an informal mentoring relationship with at least one member. A bursary of £250 will be offered to each recipient to help with materials and other costs.

Who can apply?

Artists aged 18 or over

When do I apply?

Please note that the next Scholarships have been postponed until 2021.

Due to the pandemic, the New English has decided to extend the tenures of its 2019-20 Scholars until next summer to make up for the reduction in teaching activities and accessibility of members’ studio visits that effectively cut their scholarships short. They hope that as the emergency recedes their education programme will resume and that studios will again be opened for visits, and that they will be able to announce new Scholars at their next exhibition in summer 2021. We will update this page with details of how to apply nearer the time. 

How do I apply?

To apply, please deliver your portfolio to Mall Galleries on the date/s advertised.

It should include drawings, sketchbooks and photographs of work, but no paintings on canvas or framed pieces.

Please also provide your CV and a short statement to support your application (maximum 100 words).

All portfolios must be collected on the date/s specified.

The two successful applicants will be informed before the collection date and be formally announced at the New English Art Club Annual Exhibition thereafter.
