The Marten Bequest Scholarships

The Marten Bequest Scholarships offer talented young artists the chance to explore, study and develop their artistic gifts through travelling either overseas and/or interstate.

The scholarships provide financial support under the categories acting, architecture, ballet, instrumental music, painting, poetry, prose, sculpture and singing to help talented Australian artists achieve their dreams.

The Scholarships are open to individual artists who are Australia citizens, aged 21 – 35 (17 – 35 for ballet) at the closing date.

Scholarship funds can be used to assist with study programs, professional training courses and/or mentor programs.

For more information about what the scholarships entail, as well as details about submission guidelines and required support material, please visit the Australia Council for the Arts.
