Orpen Bursary

The Orpen Bursary Fund was instituted in 1917, and consists of a capital sum of £1,000, being the proceeds, less expenses, from the sale of a competition picture done by Sir William Orpen in 1899, while a student in the Slade School. The picture was sold with Sir William Orpen's consent, provided that the proceeds were devoted to some purpose for the benefit of the Slade School

  1. The Council makes grants from time to time from the Orpen Bursary Fund.

  2. The grants are made on the recommendation of the Slade Professor of Fine Art.

  3. Candidates for the grants must be students in the Slade School of Fine Art who intend to become professional artists, and who, showing adequate promise in their work, are in need of financial assistance to enable them to continue in their career as professional artists.

  4. Candidates must give full information of their financial circumstances to the Slade Professor.

  5. The grant may be paid forthwith, or may be applied to the payment of fees, at the discretion of the Slade Professor.
