If you've every wanted to do a personal arts project, but lack the funding to make it happen - this might be for you.
The aim of the scholarships is to "give young people the time, space and money they need to develop their creative practice and unlock their potential".
What's this all about?
Each artist will receive £30,000/€40,000 towards the development of an artistic project and the cost of living for one year, along with mentoring from senior Sky staff and professionals from the arts industry.
What else do you get?
Non-financial benefits include mentoring from senior Sky staff and a senior individual from the arts industry, support from a dedicated artist manager, wider development support from Sky (marketing, budgeting, PR etc) and a short film about your project and practice.
What is the deadline?
The deadline for applications is 10 March 2016 at 5pm.
How many scholarships are there?
Four scholarships will be awarded to artists from the UK and one scholarship will be awarded to an artist living in Ireland.
