The British School at Athens is delighted to offer one travel award for UK-based artists (generally defined), whose work is broadly connected to the mission statement of the BSA. Scholarships will cover:
• Ten days of accommodation in the BSA hostel. (The stay in Greece can be extended at the candidate’s own expense)
Candidates should have a clear plan of how they will spend their time in Greece. This might involve (but is not limited to) visiting galleries, collections and museums, conducting research in the BSA library, accessing the BSA collections, using the BSA’s Eleutherios Art Studio, and networking with local artists. Preference may be given to candidates who have not visited Greece before, and who have no access to other sources of funding.
Candidates should submit letters of application to the Assistant Director, Dr Michael Loy (firstname.lastname@example.org). Letters should not be longer than two pages and should include a statement of the purposes of the application and a timetable for the proposed work, together with the name and address of a referee who should also write to the Assistant Director before the application closing date. Recipients of awards are required to submit a short report to the Assistant Director on the use of the grant within a month of completing the trip to Greece.
The closing date for applications is Friday 26th February 2021. Awards should be taken up by the end of the academic year 2020-2021.
