Each year the RBS Bursary Awards are given to ten early career artists working in three dimensions judged to be of outstanding talent.

Open to Sculptors of any age and nationality, with or without formal training, working in any style or media the awards are designed to provide vital support during what for many is a difficult transition to successful professional practice.
