Support CCS Bard
Scholarship Support

CCS Bard’s M.A. curatorial studies program is unique, nurturing future generations of curators with a course that is rigorous, challenging, and foundational for many of the best young scholars in the field. At CCS Bard, we provide unmatched facilities, an extensive collection, one of the United States’ finest contemporary art libraries, an archive, galleries, and a faculty that is unparalleled among similar programs. The single greatest obstacle to an education is financial. Please consider making a donation towards scholarship support to assist our students in pursuing higher education.

The awardee is selected by an independent panel of leading contemporary art curators, museum directors, and artists. The award reflects CCS Bard’s commitment to recognizing individuals who have defined new thinking, bold vision, and dedicated practice to the field of exhibition practice.
