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.

At the end of each academic year the student is expected to return to the College and give a talk on the places they have travelled to as a result of the scholarship and its impact on their own work.

Marketing, design and public relations agency Home Strategic has taken on the sponsorship   read more follow the link
