Jerwood Bursaries


We have now announced the 30 artists, curators and producers who will receive a Jerwood Bursary in 2020-2021. You can read more about them here.

You can read about those we awarded a Jerwood Bursary in 2019 here.

We are hoping to offer Jerwood Bursaries again in 2021. If you would like to be the first to hear about this, sign up to our mailing list.

What do you need to progress your practice and/or career?

Jerwood Bursaries provide funding of up to £1,250 to help you explore and develop your practice by enabling you to gain new skills and knowledge. We want you to have the opportunity to pursue your interests independently and on your own terms.

A Jerwood Bursary can support your development by funding meaningful opportunities to reflect on and grow your creative practice. This might include new partners for collaboration, receiving mentoring or taking part in training, conferences and workshops. It can support development of your creative practice by covering the costs of self-initiated residencies and by supporting early-stage research and testing of brand new ideas. We want you to suggest activities that will help you to learn and take control of the development of your artistic practice and career.

We particularly welcome applications for:

  • mentoring, coaching, critical feedback
  • professional and/or specialised training
  • taking part in conferences or workshops
  • self-initiated residencies
  • networking and membership of artistic networks
  • learning specific skills and knowledge
  • research to develop your practice
