Scholarship and Fellowships


The opening of the 2017 Young People and the Arts Fellowships, Aboriginal Arts Forward Fellowship, Performing Arts Mid-Career Fellowship, Visual Arts and Craft Mid-Career Fellowships and Creative Development Fellowships has been deferred due to an uncertain funding environment. 

The status of the Scholarship and Fellowships Program will be updated following confirmation of available funds.

Culture and the Arts (WA)'s Scholarship and Fellowships program aims to develop and establish a high-calibre field of respected, nationally-recognised WA artists and arts workers by providing outstanding candidates with funding support to undertake an intensive period of creative development.

Scholarship and Fellowship grants are awarded in recognition of the applicant’s demonstrated potential and/or or significant achievement in their field to date, and may support a range of projects, programs or activities, provided the proposed activity:

  • is of significant scope, scale and impact, exceeding that of activities supported through other Arts and Culture (WA) grants programs;

  • represents a significant development or variation to the applicant’s normal practice; and/or

  • provides significant and demonstrated opportunities for the development or advancement of the applicant’s practice and/or profile.

Refer to the program handbook for more information on this program.
