Marie Edwards, a graduate of the Tasmanian School of Art, holds a unique place in the Tasmanian art scene. During her ascent in the 1970s she was one of the few women artists in the State working seriously in the area of abstraction. Her works rank her amongst Tasmania's finest women artists. She endowed this scholarship to enable postgraduate visual arts students to gain experience overseas to complement their study at UTAS. The scholarship can support a broad range of international projects and also assist self-funded residencies at the Rosamond McCulloch studio.
Available to students currently undertaking postgraduate study in, or within three years of graduation from postgraduate study in, visual arts, craft or design at the University of Tasmania. The scholarship can be used to assist with self-funded residencies at the McCulloch Studio in Paris. A separate online application must be completed for the Rosamond McCulloch Studio Residency - information is available at https://www.utas.edu.au/creative-arts/art/rosamond-mcculloch-studio
