John Chisholm Marten (1908-1966) established the Marten Bequest Travelling Scholarships through his estate, to provide financial support for talented Australian artists to help them achieve their dreams.
The scholarships offer talented young artists the chance to explore, study and develop their artistic gifts through travelling either overseas or interstate.
As trustee, we are delighted to announce the 2014 Scholarship recipients in the fields of architecture, ballet, instrumental music, poetry and prose with a total value of $300,000.
