Transart Institute announced today that through a generous grant from
Foundation M and other sources 15 scholarships amounting to $37,500
have become available to students of their low-residency Master of
Fine Arts program and non-degree summer workshops.

Transart Institute's low-residency MFA in New Media program - the
first of its kind anywhere - offers an opportunity for working
professionals to further their career with self-directed artistic
study supported by self-chosen artist mentors and Transart Institute
faculty and intensive summer residencies including lectures, seminars,
workshops, critiques, exhibitions and performances. The unique
transdisciplinary program creates the possibility of interaction and
cooperation between performance and video artists, programmers,
sculptors, vjs, curators, painters and game designers etc. Genres
include: animation, architecture, cyberart, film, video, graphic
design, installation, interactive art, interdisciplinary art,
performance art, photography, and sound/music. The summer workshops
which are an integral part of the MFA program are open to the public
by application.

Eight scholarships of $2,500 will go to accepted students of merit and
financial need and two scholarships of $5,000 are available to
candidates from East European and new EU-member countries. Five full
scholarships of $750 will be given to participants of the Transart
Institute's non-degree summer workshops which are open to all.
Recipients will be selected on the basis of creative potential as
exemplified by portfolio.

Scholarship application deadline for the academic year 2005/06 is May
31st, 2005.
