Eligible individuals are graduates of not more than six years standing of a studio-based course at an Australian institution of higher education, and must be either Australian citizens or have permanent residency status, and be at least 18 years of age. Persons currently overseas may apply provided they are otherwise eligible in accordance with the above.
