THE RSA DAVID MICHIE TRAVEL AWARD

***EXTENDED DEADLINE – SUNDAY 29 MARCH 2020***
Given that students across Scotland are being asked to vacate their art colleges at a time when they would be finalising their applications we have decided to extend the RSA Student Opportunities by one week. The new deadline is Sunday 29 March 2020.

*STATEMENT REGARDING CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)
We are  very much aware of the developments of Covid-19. We have made the decision to keep the applications open for the 2020 RSA David Michie Travel Award as detailed in the guidelines below, however, the dates for the chosen artist to visit their chosen travel destination will be pushed back until the UK Government declares it completely safe to visit. Please get in touch if you have any further questions.
