CALL FOR PROPOSALS: Australian Ceramics Student Scholarships Triennale 2019

The Australian Ceramics Association (TACA) is offering a scholarship to 2 ceramics students to enable them their attendance at the Australian Ceramics Triennale in Hobart, Tasmania from 1–4 May 2019.

Valued at $1500 each, these two scholarships will assist the successful applicants to cover the costs of Triennale registration, travel and accommodation.

These funds have been made available by TACA using the remaining money from The Trudie Alfred Bequest, along with sales of jam made as a fundraiser for TACA by Ursula Burgoyne, a ceramic artist from NSW.

We are calling for proposals from students currently enrolled (2018) in an Australian university or TAFE.

The two successful applicants will be required to contribute 6 hours of their time to assist with MANIFEST, TACA’s exhibition in Hobart.

There will be a selection panel of two – Holly Macdonald, TACA Board Director, and Vicki Grima, TACA Executive Officer.

The deadline for proposals is Friday 5 October at 5pm, AEST.
