Christie’s Heart For Art Scholarship

On the Donor

Founded in 1766 by James Christie, Christie’s is a world-renowned auction house.  As an industry leader, Christie’s believes in the power of art in society and they endeavour to use their position in the art market as a positive force.  To act upon its global equality, diversity & inclusion initiatives, Christie’s is pleased to support those social-economically disadvantaged students who want to enter the art world.  In 2021, Christie’s pledged a donation to assist needy undergraduate students in the Faculty of Arts to learn outside the classroom and explore their career interests through different kinds of experiential learning opportunities in the art world. 

Purpose and Scope

Up to FIVE scholarships shall be awarded annually to full-time Bachelor of Arts students (in the second year or above) in the Faculty of Arts who have secured a structured experiential learning experience in art-related organizations, with details as follows:

  •  The selection shall be based on academic merit (cumulative GPA of 3.00 or above); and quality and relevance of the experience to the student’s studies; and proven financial need is necessary (priority will be given to those who are the first-generation university students in the family).
  • Structured experiential learning experiences may include local or overseas internships, fieldtrips, summer/ winter programmes, study visits, etc., and the experiences can be credit-bearing or non-credit-bearing.
  • Art-related organizations may include but not limited to museums, galleries, art fairs and art events organizers, non-profit and public art institutions (least priority will be given to auction houses including Christie’s).

A student can only be granted this Scholarship ONCE during his/ her studies.
