A scholarship named after the internationally renowned island artist and art nouveau designer Archibald Knox and worth £3,000 as a travel bursary to this year’s winning student is to be sponsored by an island company.
Five creative students from Isle of Man College will be shortlisted for the award and the winner will be announced at the Archibald Knox 150th Anniversary Dinner on June 25.
The bursary, spread over three years, is designed to help with travel costs incurred by the student in pursuing his or her university degree.
