The Courtauld Institute of Art’s former students succeed in a range of careers in the visual arts, shaping how we see our visual heritage and opening up access to the visual arts to scholars and the general public alike. Many go on to manage our most famous museums and galleries, or become curators, teachers and lecturers, or conservators of some the world’s most precious works of art. Supporting our students to fulfil their potential through scholarships is crucial – and we all benefit.

We are enormously grateful to all the individuals and trusts which make generous gifts to support scholars. We welcome and thank new donors for scholarships in the academic year 2006/7: leading law firm Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, and the Marshall Aid Commemoration Commission – both supporting a US scholar; John Lyon’s Charity supporting two scholars from London; and Ian Jones supporting a UK student.

“It [my scholarship] has had a huge impact on my life here. It would have been a real struggle to come up with the fees, so has taken a lot of pressure off me and allowed me to concentrate on my studies.”  Polly Saltmarsh – Worshipful Company of Painter-Stainers Scholar

How you can help
The Courtauld seeks supporters who would like  to help young students through scholarships. In particular the Courtauld seeks scholarships for UK/EU students for academic year 2006/7 and 2007/8. A gift of £3,000 will cover the fees of a scholar, and a gift of £10,000 will support a full scholarship for one year. Scholarships can be named in your own name, or in honour of another individual.

To make a gift of a scholarship for 2006/7 kindly contact us by Friday, 30 June prior to UK/EU scholarship allocation. If you would like to discuss making a gift, either for 2006/7 or beyond please contact Kate Knight (details below).

Call for support for the Michael Kitson Scholarship Fund

Each year we aim to raise at least £6,000 in memory of Michael Kitson to help students with their fees. This year’s scholarships are supporting one MA and one PhD student. We are very grateful to Michael’s many friends, colleagues and former students who contribute each year to make up this sum. This year we have already received a total of £2,000.

If you are a new donor to the fund, please contact Kate Knight by email or telephone (details below) with your full contact details and she will forward a Gift Form for you to complete and return.

If you are an existing donor, please send your cheque made payable to ‘The Courtauld Institute of Art Fund’ (marked Michael Kitson scholarship on the reverse) to Kate Knight, Development Office, Courtauld Institute of Art, Strand, London WC2R 0RN.
