NGCI Deutsche Bank Internship and Scholarship RecipientsThe National Gallery of the Cayman Islands (NGCI) is pleased to announce that applications for the 2016 NGCI Deutsche Bank Visual Arts Scholarship are now being accepted.

Launched as a partnership between Deutsche Bank and the National Gallery in 2008 to support the development of young Caymanian students who wish to pursue a career in the arts, the scholarship is worth a maximum of US $20,000 per annum for up to four years. The biennial award is available to Caymanians and students who reside permanently in the Cayman Islands between the ages of 17 and 25 years. This scholarship is administered by NGCI on behalf of Deutsche Bank, with counsel from the Education Council of the Cayman Islands.

“Given the increased interest in tertiary arts education, the NGCI Deutsche Bank Visual Arts Scholarship is a critical stepping stone in developing a creative industry where students from all backgrounds are able to pursue a career in the arts.” Explains NGCI Director, Natalie Urquhart. “This is an unparalleled opportunity for creative young people in Cayman wishing to further their education, develop their talents, reach their potential, and in doing, enhance the community in which we live and work.”

In 2014 the scholarship was awarded to two worthy applicants, Lorena Morejon who is completing an undergraduate course in film at Ithaca College and Simon Tatum who is studying Art History and Painting at University of Missouri.

Janet Hislop, Chief Country Officer of Deutsche Bank (Cayman) Limited, comments: “Nurturing talent and encouraging creativity through the arts is something that Deutsche Bank is passionate about and qualities that are intrinsic to our own approach. With that in mind, I am delighted that the Bank continues to support this scholarship that gives local Caymanian artists, such as Lorena and Simon, a really valuable and exciting opportunity to develop their talent and share their enthusiasm for the arts. I look forward to seeing some strong applications.”

Applications for the 2016 NGCI Deutsche Bank Visual Arts Scholarship will be accepted from 1 January 2016 to 30 April 2016. Members from the NGCI Education Department will be available to discuss the opportunity and assist with applications at the Careers, Education & Training Expo hosted by the Chamber of Commerce, Friday, 26 February 2016 from 10:00 AM until 7:00 PM at the University College of the Cayman Islands.
