"Mahy Khalifa Art Fund in collaboration with Art D’Egypte, is offering full funding for a postgraduate art scholarship. We call on Egyptian students in the field of visual and applied arts who want to continue their postgraduate studies in Europe to apply," reads the information released by Art D'Egypte on their Facebook page.
The submissions deadline is 10 June 2021.
The Mahy Khalifa Art Fund seeks to support young, talented and aspiring artists on their journey to further pursue their studies in the arts.
The Fund was created by Dina Shehata and Karim Abou Youssef in memory of Mahy Khalifa, an art lover and collector, who passed away in July 2019.
When launching the fund's first edition last year, Dina Shehata, the daughter of Mahy Khalifa expressed that her mother “had a strong passion for the arts and had over her lifetime put together a varied and valuable art collection that comprised Egyptian modernist and contemporary artists, in addition to European orientalist and contemporary art work. My husband and I wanted to honor her memory by creating an art fund and scholarship for Egyptian artists in her name.”
The fund aims at supporting Egyptian citizens. Applicants can seek a graduate degree (masters) or don-negree (research institution) in a variety of artistic fields such as visual arts, new media arts, art history, art criticism, curating and art management, among others.
The applicants should provide the acceptance letter from the institution they wish to enroll. The ability to speak fluently the language of the chosen institution is also a must. Applicants must have graduated at the minimum 12 months ago, and be up to 35-years-old.
