Visions of Science Art Bursaries

In addition to the Art Prize, we have a maximum of eight bursaries of up to £1000 each. Bursary awards are for artworks that have yet to be made and require input from the University of Bath’s Faculty of Science. The bursary works will be made over the summer and featured in the autumn exhibition.

Entries should be made via a 3 minute video proposal.

The Visions of Science Bursary is free to enter
