Join a growing community of people who believe anyone can have a world class creative education regardless of their background or bank account.

Our scholarships and bursaries really change the lives of our students, giving them invaluable creative and career opportunities.

Here's just a snapshot of how this funding has helped them:

The AKO Bursary gave me the creative freedom to explore and experiment with my ideas without feeling guilty about my financial position.

The bursary enabled me to complete many more paintings than I could have done and pushed my practice in regards to use of materials.
