Alasdair Cameron Scholarship

Description

The Alasdair Cameron Scholarship exists to support the creation of a piece of performance by a recent graduate or senior student of Theatre Studies at the University of Glasgow. 

The Scholarship commemorates the life of Dr Alasdair Cameron, a Theatre Studies graduate, lecturer and senior lecturer, who died in 1994.  Alasdair, a leading authority on Scottish theatre and drama, was an influential and inspiring teacher and well-respected colleague whose commitment to the Department and its students is celebrated in this scholarship.

The production supported by the Scholarship should be mounted for at least two showings at the University of Glasgow (in one of Theatre Studies’ performance spaces or elsewhere on campus). The production should involve students from Theatre, Film and Television Studies (TFTS), but can also include personnel from outwith TFTS and the University.

The award of around £500 is made annually and can be used on its own or as a contribution towards the funding of the production (other sources of funding include the School of Culture and Creative Arts’ Creative Practice Fund).  The production should normally happen – and the award monies dispensed – within nine months of the date of the award.  Acknowledgement of receipt of the Alasdair Cameron Scholarship should be made on all programmes and other print or publicity associated with the supported production.

The award is made by a committee comprising of the Head of Theatre Studies, Mr Tony Sweeten (James Arnott Theatre Technician) and one of the tutors of Theatre Studies practical options within three weeks of receiving the applications.
