Central to the Sheila Hugh Mackay Foundation’s mandate is the support of excellence in all forms of visual art.  SHMF’s Career Development Program aims to assist artists to reach their creative potential at many stages of their career development through a variety of funding opportunities.

SHMF invites applications for the following 2021 Career Development Programs:

Fred Ross Scholarship
Sheila Mackay Advanced Studies Scholarship
Margaret Woodson Nae Mentorship

In 2021, with respect for the complex travel restrictions necessitated by the pandemic, SHMF will not offer an International Residency Scholarship.

Application details can be found on our Apply page. The Foundation reserves the right to refuse applications or nominations that do not meet the published criteria or submission deadlines.

Applications for the Fred Ross Scholarship and the Sheila Mackay Advanced Studies Scholarship must be postmarked by March 15, 2021. Application details can be found on our Apply page.

The foundation cannot accept Career Development Program applications by email.
