  • The Ian Potter Museum of Art Miegunyah Student Project Award

  • The Ian Potter Museum of Art offers competitive Awards to University of Melbourne students across all disciplines, for small projects focused on The Russell and Mab Grimwade ‘Miegunyah’ Collection. The Ian Potter Museum of Art Miegunyah Student Project Award scheme aims to give students experience in working in an interdisciplinary context with a significant and extensive material and visual culture collection. In recognition of the changing face of academic engagement these projects also give students the opportunity to think about how to share their research with a range of audiences and to make use of multiple modes of distribution.
