The partnership will provide funding for three years of study fees for two students.

The partnership sees course fees funded for the selected students’ three years of study, or part time equivalent. The brief states applications are invited from qualified students wanting to write a thesis on topics which could include ‘untrained or outsider art', artist-specific studies, gender studies, post-colonial studies and socio-economic access to art production and reception.
