About Charles Wallace India Trust Scholarships

  • Every year CWIT offers up to two long term awards. These scholarships are for artists (all disciplines) and usually cover 10 months (the taught MA programme). The Charles Wallace India Trust has created a multi-year partnership with the University of Oxford, Ruskin School of Art. CWIT and the university will jointly fund a scholarship for an emerging artist (who is an Indian national and residing in India) to do a one-year Masters degree in Fine Art (MFA) at the Ruskin School of Art. The current plans are for three annual scholarships to be awarded in 2023, 2025 and 2027. Very occasionally, a grant may be awarded to an individual who has designed their own professional development programme (through one or more modular courses), outside of a university setting and these are usually for between 3 to 6 months. We encourage Artists and Makers who wish to explore new techniques, for example in the field of ceramics, to apply in this way.
