The Anne & Gordon Samstag International Visual Arts Scholarships were established in 1992 through the generous bequest of the late Gordon Samstag, an American artist who taught from 1961 to 1970 at the South Australian School of Art.
Samstag Scholarships are awarded by the University of South Australia on behalf of Mr Samstag's Trustee: US Trust, Bank of America Private Wealth Management, Naples, Florida, USA. The Samstag Program is administered through the Anne & Gordon Samstag Museum of Art.
Gordon Samstag's remarkable gift ranks as one of the very great bequests to visual arts education in Australia.
Applications for the Class of 2015 Samstag Scholarships closed 30 June 2014.
