Regulations and Statutes UTR6.241 The Barbara Manning Scholarship (2007 - )

7 May 2007

In June 1998, the Thomas Foundation donated $100,000 to the Victorian College of the Arts to establish a fund for a scholarship to be called 'The Barbara Manning Scholarship'. The purpose of the scholarship was to provide financial assistance enabling an outstanding candidate to undertake a postgraduate course in Animateuring, Directing or Writing. The scholarship was created in memory of the late Barbara Manning, also known as Barbara Manning Ward, who established the Tasmanian Theatre in Education Company and was said to have laid the foundations for a generation of ground-breaking theatre for the young.


The Thomas Foundation was established by the family of Barbara Manning Ward represented by her nephew, David Thomas. Its vision was to develop the talent and creativity of young artists residing in Australia or New Zealand, and to enhance the environment in which they live.
