The Windmill Trust Scholarship was originally established in 1997 in memory of artist Penny Meagher. With the aim being to support professional artists from regional NSW to develop and/or present their work, the scholarship provides assistance towards the cost of:
- independent artistic research or practice such as studio rental, material or labour costs
- professional development and education
- presenting work in new ways
- exhibiting work such as framing, space rental, promotion, artists’ fees, freight, installation and documentation.
The deadline has been extended for applications for the scholarship with artists now having until midnight on Sunday, August 15 to complete their submission.
The funding will be awarded to one individual or group and will be up to $10,000 + GST.
