About the Programme

The purpose of the Artists' Bursaries programme was to provide artists and other creative professionals with the time and resources needed to develop their practice. It was open to individuals at any stage in their career. These fixed bursaries were for artists able to demonstrate a high level of quality, imagination and ambition in their work.

The Artists' Bursaries programme ran during 2013/14 but as of August 2014 the fund is now closed.  From September 2014, anyone interested in funding for development of their artistic practice should now look at the Open Project Fund.

If you require any advice about Creative Scotland funding, please contact the Enquiries Service on 0845 603 6000 (10am-12pm & 2-4pm Mon - Fri, voicemail outwith these hours) or email: enquiries@creativescotland.com.
