The Miriam Waterman Memorial Scholarship

The Miriam Waterman Memorial Scholarship

The Miriam Waterman Memorial Scholarship was established through a generous donation from the Waterman family, to commemorate Miriam Waterman who tragically died of Covid-19 in 2021.

Applications are welcome from artists from varying visual arts fields with a desire to focus on Contemporary Portraiture.

The scholarship is awarded to a student of exceptional promise, covering 50% of their tuition fees to study BA (Hons) Contemporary Portraiture at Art Academy London, the only BA of its kind in Europe.

Sholarship

  • There are two scholarships available both offering 50% of the annual tuition fees. In all cases an applicant must be able to pay the remainder of the tuition fees and be able to fund material and living costs throughout the programme. The value of the scholarship is deducted from the fee amount payable. Where the remainder of the tuition fee is paid termly, or by a payment plan, it will be subject to published surcharges. Fees for subsequent years are subject to annual inflationary increases (of not more than 5%), prior to the deduction of the awarded scholarship amount.
  • You must be able to commit to studying the BA (Hons) Fine Art Contemporary Portraiture full time (3 tutored days a week, plus at least one further day of independent study, for three years).
  • Please visit the BA (Hons) Contemporary Portraiture course page to find out more about the study programme and other costs associated with the programme.
  • In order to help reduce the barriers to entry, this scholarship is without an entry fee, made possible by the generosity of the Waterman family.
