Arts Council of Wales | Brian Ross Memorial Award

Brian Ross Memorial Award

We are delighted to offer the award to two graduating Fine Art degree students again this year, each receiving £3,000 for one year. Applications are now open for 2018/19.

Brian Ross left his estate to Arts Council of Wales stating that his legacy should be used to encourage and support up and coming artists to develop their work and to further their careers.

Since 2011 this legacy has been used to support graduating Welsh or Wales based visual artists in the early stages of their professional artistic career.
