National Arts Council of SA Bursary South Africa

ABOUT THE COMPANY – NAC

The National Arts Council of South Africa (NAC) was established via an act of parliament in 1997 with the aim of promoting the free expression of cultures in South Africa, through arts.

Managed by the South African Department of Arts and Culture, the NAC is responsible for the country’s creative industry development, by way of grant awards in the arts faculty. The Council is one of the major funding bodies for artists in the country.
 

ABOUT THE NAC BURSARY PROGRAMME – FIELDS COVERED

The National Arts Council (NAC) is inviting students to apply for their International Bursary programme, for the 2023 academic year.

 

The International Bursary will be awarded for Undergraduate and Postgraduate studies towards an Arts qualification (including dance, craft, multidiscipline, literature, theatre, music, and visual arts)at any international tertiary institution outside of South Africa.

Through the bursary programme, the NAC hopes to increase the development of talented artists at various international institutions.

MORE ABOUT THE NAC INTERNATIONAL BURSARY PROGRAMME – EXPENSES COVERED & SELECTION

The bursary aims to provide cover for the following expenses: tuition fees and registration costs. In special cases, it may cover residence at relevant institutions or with experienced/ seasoned arts practitioners (all living costs will be determined by the NAC annually). Bursaries will be awarded to the maximum value of R250 000 per year.

The panel will allocate tuition cost funding relative to costs determined by the candidate’s chosen university. Should the student’s tuition fees be already covered by another source, the funding will be issued towards ancillary costs, such as books, accommodation, travel, and a subsistence allowance. This will be subject to the NAC’s written approval.

Successful candidates will be notified by no later than 26 May 2023.

MORE ABOUT THE NAC INTERNATIONAL BURSARY PROGRAMME – RENEWAL AND T&C’S

The grant will be renewable for the length of the student’s course and subject to the successful completion of each year of study. It is also the responsibility of the student to ensure that they adhere to all conditions of the grant.

Once the student has completed their studies, they will be required to share the skills they gained by assisting underprivileged organizations, groups, and/ or a specific individual in the community. Such services may include outreach programmes, workshops, admin support, mentoring, and capacity building. Proof of these services must be supplied to the NAC by the candidate and community leader(s)/ institution in the form of a written report and photographs.

Please note:

  • Successful students and a beneficiary will be required to sign an agreement with the NAC.
  • Students who are entering a two to a three-year degree will not need to reapply for funding and will be given a grant for the length of their studies. This is subject to the student successfully completing each year of studies.
  • The NAC reserves the right to terminate the agreement in the second semester/ year should the candidate not maintain satisfactory performance. This will be based on the written progress report provided by the student’s supervisor.
