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.
Five artistic disciplines will be on offer for the 2014 scholarships. These are architecture, ballet, instrumental music, poetry and prose. The application process will open in October 2013.
