THE MISS M O TAYLOR TRUST FUND / ALEXANDER NASMYTH FUND
The RSA Miss M O Taylor Trust Fund and Alexander Nasmyth Fund are benevolent funds that were bequeathed to the RSA. Awards are made from these funds to support artists who are currently experiencing adverse financial difficulties. For example, an artist who is unable to practice their work due to caring for a sick or elderly relative, or due to personal incapacity through illness. Applications to the fund are dealt with in the strictest confidence and are reviewed by an RSA Committee once a year when awards are made to those eligible.
To be eligible for an award from these funds, you must be an artist who has had some previous measure of success, for example, have had your work shown in exhibitions and/or have sold your work. You must also be currently living in Scotland.
If you would like to discus any aspects of the funds, please contact Matt Hill, Academy Coordinator
