The Bursary Award is available in the following artforms:

  • Arts Participation
  • Literature (English & Irish)
  • Traditional Arts
  • Visual Arts
  • YPCE

The Arts Council provides Bursary Awards in order to assist individual artists in the development of their art practice. The award emphasises the value and benefit to an artist’s development that is derived from a focused period of engagement with their practice.

Next Generation Bursary Award


The Arts Council is committed to supporting emerging artists of promise. We acknowledge that artists work as lone practitioners and as collaborators in a wide range of contexts. The objective of the award is to support professional artists from across Ireland at an early stage of their career.

Guidelines for each award will be published on the available funding section on our website.

Please note

Applications will only be accepted through the Arts Council’s online services website. Applicants who have not previously used this system must register in advance of making an application. It is recommended that applicants allow five working days for registration prior to making an application.
