Eight 5 digit Scholarships for Transart's MFA
MFA Creative Practice + practice-based PhD accredited by Plymouth University

Project-based scholarships enable artists with specific projects and 
concerns to join the Transart MFA.

Earth Awareness Prize

The Transart Earth Awareness Prize awards a quarter of tuition costs 
on the MFA Creative Practice to two artists with MFA projects that 
raise environmental awareness and are exemplary in dealing with the 
many challenges we face in advancing stewardship for the earth.

Social Change Award

The Transart Social Change Award gives a quarter of tuition costs to 
two artists whose MFA projects champion social change through direct 
involvement with communities or through raising awareness for a 
specific issue.

Peace and Mediation Prize

The Transart Peace and Mediation Prize awards the same amounts 
(2x$10,000) to two artists with MFA projects that deal with the role 
of art in peace and mediation.

Merit Awards

Furthermore, two Transart Merit Awards will be given to applicants 
whose practice and proposed projects are of the highest level of 
artistic achievement. These awards are not limited to any media, 
theme or specific field. The amounts awarded are the same as on the 
other prizes.


Artists who wish to be considered for any of the awards need to 
to the MFA Creative Practice by April 15th. Award winners in each 
category are chosen by an independent jury no later than May 5th.
