George Mason Visual Art Scholarship

The George Mason Visual Arts Scholarship


The objective of the George Mason Visual Arts Scholarship is to assist a Year 13 student studying any of the five visual arts disciplines at a Taranaki secondary school to continue their visual arts study at a tertiary level, including design and architecture courses.

The Scholarship encourages not only academic achievers but also any student who demonstrates drive and motivation towards a career in visual arts. The Scholarship is awarded annually to the value of $3,000, to be paid as a one-off lump sum to the winning student on proof of enrolment for a visual arts tertiary education course.

The Scholarship is funded by the George Mason Trust and managed by the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery. This includes administering the application and award process and promoting the Scholarship to Taranaki visual arts teachers and students through the Gallery’s website and marketing.
