Applying for MEAD Scholarships & Fellowships

Come along to this briefing to find out more about the MEAD Scholarships and Fellowships, and how to complete your initial (Stage #1) application. 

The briefing will cover:

The scholarships and fellowships are designed to help UAL students and alumni develop their creative practice.
Each year five UAL students and recent graduates are given MEAD Scholarships and Fellowships. The Awardees complete arts projects which will add to their industry / discipline, and have a positive impact on their own practice. 
Mead Awards are open for projects in any creative discipline studied at UAL. 
To see the range of projects so far, download our past awards from the MEAD Awards webpage.
Mead Scholarships are awards of up to £2,500. UAL undergraduates can apply in their penultimate year (the year before your final one). Awards are given for projects which to be completed in the final year at UAL, as part of your degree work. 
Mead Fellowships are awards of up to £10,000. These are for UAL students (both undergraduate and postgraduate), who are in their final year when applying. The arts project must be completed during the year after graduation. 
Alumni can also apply for Fellowships if you graduated in 2017.
