DCMS Jerwood Creative Bursaries Scheme 2010-12

The DCMS Jerwood Creative Bursaries Scheme was the inaugural edition of the Creative Bursaries, a talent development initiative creating new, paid, entry-level roles in the arts for recent arts graduates. The Creative Bursaries address the socio-economic barriers that skilled graduates entering the workplace face and is open to graduates from low-income backgrounds who were in receipt of a full maintenance grant throughout university. The DCMS Jerwood Creative Bursaries Scheme was designed and managed by Jerwood Arts and its founder Jerwood Foundation, funded by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and Arts Council England (ACE). It ran from August 2010 to March 2012.
