Charles Wallace India Trust Awards 2020-21


Every year CWIT offers up to 10 long term awards, aiming at giving early to mid career practitioners a chance to study or gain wider experience and exposure. The balance between Arts and Heritage Conservation varies from year to year depending on demand and performance at interview.


The awards, which are generally from 2–3 months up to a maximum of a year, cover accommodation and living costs in the UK, fees and a contribution to international fares. CWIT does not support two year courses.
