The Mead Scholarships and Fellowships are one of the most prestigious student and graduate support programmes at the University, designed to support University of the Arts London students and recent graduates in the pursuit of excellence through the development of their creative practice.
The Mead Programme is managed by SEE (Student Enterprise and Employability) and generously supported by philanthropist Scott Mead, for an initial five years, beginning 2012/13. Scott Mead is a fine art photographer, philanthropist and investor based in London for over 20 years. From his base in London, many of his current business and philanthropic activities take him to the United States and Asia on a regular basis.
Scott's photographs have been exhibited and sold in the UK, Europe and USA and are held in various private and institutional collections. He is involved with a number of major institutions in education, healthcare and the arts through the Mead Family Foundation, of which he is Founder and Chairman.
He has had over 30 years of experience in the financial services sector, including as a partner and managing director of Goldman Sachs, which he left in 2003, and an investor and director with start-up businesses in media and technology.
