The Taplin Award was created in memory of Alex who was a former MA Fine Art student at Falmouth.

The award aims to support an individual to be able to travel to a European city outside of the UK, to undertake an arts-related trip. It is desirable that trips be undertaken in environmentally friendly a manner as possible and applications will need to demonstrate their consideration for the environmental aspects of their proposal.

The award is for £400 and is open to all students enrolled on a course within the School of Art.
