To apply you must be a UAL undergraduate student starting your final year. Your proposal must show how the funds would help you complete your final major project.

Mead Awards are designed to help UAL students and alumni develop their creative practice. Your arts project can be in any creative discipline which is studied at UAL.

Mead awards aim to help you learn and reflect through the application process. Applicants receive individual feedback at each stage, outlining the main points from the shortlisting panel’s discussions. This is designed to be helpful for creating future proposals, pitches and funding applications.

Careers and Employability manages the awards, as part of its work supporting UAL students and graduates to make a living doing what they love.

The Mead Awards have been generously supported by Scott Mead since 2013. Scott is a fine art photographer, philanthropist and investor, based in London for over 20 years.

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 also a Governor at UAL, and 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.
