Celebrating 20 years in 2018, the annual Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship is open to Australian artists aged between 20 and 30 years.

It was created from an endowment by Mrs Beryl Whiteley, who died in 2010. The inspiration was the profound effect international travel and study had on her son, the artist Brett Whiteley, as a result of winning the Italian Government Travelling Art Scholarship at the age of 20.

The scholarship consists of $40,000 and a three-month residency at the Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris, which is administered by the Art Gallery of NSW.

The 2018 winner will be announced on 6 September 2018, and a selection of works from the winner and finalists will be on display at the Brett Whiteley Studio from 7 September.
