Applying for a Mead Final Project Award (for Final Year UAL students ONLY)
This event is open to final year UAL undergraduate students ONLY. Please book your place here.
This briefing will tell you all about the Mead Final Project Award (formerly called Mead Scholarships), and how to complete your application. 

The briefing will cover:

- How to submit your art project idea as a proposal
- Overview of the application process
- What to include in your submission
- How to present your proposal for maximum impact

The Mead Awards were introduced in 2013 (with a major donation by Scott Mead) to fund arts projects which help UAL students and alumni develop their creative practice.
If you are a Final Year undergraduate student (working in any discipline), you may apply for a Mead Final Project Award of up to £2,500. This award aims to support students who need extra finance to achieve their final major project to their aspirations.
To apply for a Mead Final project Award, you must be:
  • A current UAL undergraduate student, in your final year

We welcome applications by those in receipt of a UAL Bursary or Access to Learning grant, in recognition that finances are often a barrier for these students.
Applications must be to request financial support for your final (degree) project during 2019. 

To see the range of past Mead Scholarship projects, see the Mead Awards website.
Mead Awards cannot be used to fund your tuition fees or living expenses.For information about these types of funds, please visit: Students Fees and Funding

The deadline for MEAD Final Project Award applications is 09:00 am on Mon 26 November 2018.
