The Making Matters Award has been founded by a DJCAD alumnus with the specific purpose of assisting students on the MFA Art & Humanities who may require extra financial resources in order to undertake the one-year full time course. The award may benefit one postgraduate student who may receive the full sum or alternatively if there are two equally strong proposals and a decision cannot be reached the award may be split between two postgraduate students. The inaugural award will be awarded to the student/s at the commencement of their studies in 2020. The award will be for one year.
