SCHOLARSHIPS & AWARDS
SCHOLARSHIPS AND AWARDS
The work of artists in receipt of RSA scholarships and awards is a particular highlight of the collections.
In the 19th century, scholars’ work began entering the collections to represent the shaping of artistic practice through exploration and discovery. Closely tied to the Academy as a teaching institution, scholarships were offered for travel and awards were made for Life School and exhibition works.
The scholarship collections are very unique, containing work from artists at early stages in their careers which create interesting juxtapositions with their mature practice.
Current scholarships and awards that result in artists’ work entering the collections are the John Kinross Scholarship to Florence, the Morton Award for lens-based work, the Littlejohn Award for excellence and innovation in water-based media, the Barns-Graham Travel Award and the James Cumming Award for Draughtsmanship.
