The Scholarship is not only for formal study, though you need to submit a letter of acceptance into the course of your choice, if that is your intention.
You can organise a work exchange, or develop your own study plan to suit your particular interests and area of expertise.
For example if your area of interest as a costume designer was textiles, you may plan to visit various European textile/decorative arts museums, and meet the curators. You would need to demonstrate prior knowledge of the nature of each museum’s collection, how it would enhance your career and have contacted the curators to discuss your planned visit.
Applicants are required to submit a detailed study plan noting what they hope to achieve and how it would benefit their career by travelling overseas to study.
The Committee requires a simple breakdown of planned expenditure to ensure the applicant’s intentions are achievable within their financial means.
