    Each year the RSA John Kinross Scholarship enables ten final year and postgraduate art and architecture students the opportunity to research and develop their practice in Florence for up to three months. Florence has been an inspiration to generations of artists and architects and this opportunity allows successful applicants to experience the city’s magnificent history, study its art and architecture, learn the language and create a visual record of their experience. Upon their return, 

    examples of scholars’ work are accessioned to the Collection of the Royal Scottish Academy.

     

    Since the John Kinross Memorial Fund was established in 1981 by J B Kinross CBE HRSA in memory of his father, architect John Kinross RSA, it has supported over 450 emerging artists and distributed over £730,000 in funds (2021 figures). From its modest beginnings, the Scholarship has grown to be the most important travelling award the RSA has ever administered, and the current guidelines continue to reflect the spirit in which the Scholarship was originally envisioned.

     

    In 2021, to celebrate its milestone fortieth anniversary, an exhibition curated by Mary Bourne RSA and a publication were put together to highlight the breadth and diversity of the practices the Scholarship has supported and the lasting impact it has had on the Scholars involved. 

     

    A full list of John Kinross Scholars by year can be found below. This page is currently in development and reflections and images from scholars will continue to be added over the coming months.
