Malta Arts Scholarships Scheme

The Malta Arts Scholarships Scheme targets persons seeking to further their artistic expression through training programmes or academic studies.


Art is the pulse and soul of a vibrantly and progressive nation. An energised, growing and sustainable arts community, which spans all art forms and delivers quality outcomes, will sustain an even more demanding leisure industry and is vital to ensure the future cultural, social, intellectual and economic wellbeing of Malta while in the same time preserving and promoting our immense artistic and cultural heritage which span millennia.

The Malta Arts Scholarships Scheme aims at providing more opportunities to support individuals who are exceptionally talented in the creation and/or promotion of the expressive arts. Theatre, music, dance, design, creative writing, film, the visual arts or any combination thereof shall be given priority.
