In accordance with Stanley’s wishes to encourage and support education, particularly in fine and performing arts, the Stanley Picker Trust provides a range of grants, scholarships and bursaries to assist students in these fields with their studies. The Trust also funds the annual Stanley Picker Fellowships in Fine Art and Design at Kingston University (http://www.stanleypickergallery.org/fellowships).
The trustees meet in April/May each year to make awards to assist students with their studies for the academic year starting on the following 1st September, and to consider grants for arts educational projects during the same period. Applications must be made in writing to the address below between 1st January and 31st March in order to be considered for the year beginning on the following September 1st.
In the case of students on recognised vocational courses, the Trust provides scholarship funds to a number of leading conservatoires and other arts educational institutions, to be awarded to students at the discretion of the institution concerned on the basis of merit and need. The trustees are, however, willing to consider individual applications from students provided they include a full curriculum vitae, details and proof of the course and institution to be attended, an academic and personal reference and a financial case for assistance. Such awards are strictly limited by the trust’s available funds.
In the case of educational projects, a very limited number of grants are available to support educational projects focussed upon fine art practice and appreciation, and participation by young people in performing arts. Any application should include full details of the project and its funding.
Applications should be addressed to:
