Arts Bursaries For 2020

Arts Bursaries Open For 2020

South African students who will be studying towards an MA or PhD in an arts discipline are invited to apply for one of ten bursaries of R30 000 available through the ACT Development Programme.

Thanks to the generous support of the Nedbank Arts Affinity programme, ACT has assisted 18 postgraduate students at different institutions across South Africa in a range of degree subjects since 2018. These include applied theatre, arts administration, creative writing, cultural policy and management, digital curation, dramaturgy, fine art, history of art, and music. ‘It is exciting to see the range of work being done across the country at the junction of arts and academia,’ says programme manager Jessica Glendinning.

This initiative is intended to encourage academic research in the arts and culture sector and the documentation of arts practice. Head of Group Sponsorships and Cause Marketing at Nedbank, Tobie Badenhorst, says: ‘We are excited to contribute to arts and culture across South Africa. Nedbank’s brand essence is all about being money experts who do good, and this is why we continue to fund the Arts and Culture Trust, as it serves as confirmation of our commitment to growth and innovation in the arts.’

Students who wish to apply must currently be enrolled in a degree programme or have already applied to their prospective institution. Only online application forms will be accepted, and all supporting documents must be submitted with this form. The closing date is 29 November 2019.
