Eight scholarships for Transart’s MFA
Project-based scholarships enable artists with specific projects and concerns to join the Transart MFA. Further details will be announced in March’s News from Planet Transart. Please subscribe here if interested.

Earth Awareness prize
The Transart Earth Awareness prize awards a quarter of tuition costs on the MFA Creative Practice to two artists with MFA projects that raise environmental awareness and are exemplary in dealing with the many challenges we face in advancing stewardship for the earth.

Social Change award
The Transart Social Change award gives a quarter of tuition costs to two artists whose MFA projects champion social change through direct involvement with communities or through raising awareness for a specific issue.

Peace and Mediation prize
The Transart Peace and Mediation prize awards the same amounts to two artists with MFA projects that deal with the role of art in peace and mediation.

Merit awards
Furthermore, two Transart Merit awards will be given to applicants whose practice and proposed projects are of the highest level of artistic achievement. These awards are not limited to any media, theme or specific field. The amounts awarded are the same as on the other prizes.

Artists who wish to be considered for any of the award need to apply to the MFA Creative Practice by April 15. Award winners in each category are chosen by an independent jury no later than May 5.

About Transart and the Low-Residency MFA in Berlin and NYC
Transart offers a unique low-residency experience in two of the most exciting creative cities in the world, Berlin and New York. Joining this program means becoming part of a network of faculty, students, and alumni who are distinctively collaborative, creative, and successful.

We will consider applications from students without a first degree who can show evidence of relevant professional experience. Students who have previous graduate-level coursework can apply credits towards advanced standing. Students who are interested in earning a practice-based PhD can apply for the fast-track after one-year on the MFA program.
