About the Fund
The Mahy Khalifa Art Fund was created by Dina Shehata and Karim Abou Youssef in loving memory of Mahy Khalifa who was a cosmopolitan and sophisticated art lover and collector. The Mahy Khalifa Art Fund is scheduled to launch in 2020 in partnership with Art D'Égypte to support multifaceted aspects of the art movement in Egypt, with an emphasis on art education. The aim of the fund is to foster contemporary art and culture education, production and research, to deliver a sustainable source of funding for artists, and to encourage patronage, and philanthropy towards arts and culture.
The first initiative of the Mahy Khalifa Art Fund is an art scholarship for graduate studies in Europe. The scholarship is an opportunity for Egyptian students seeking to pursue their studies in the field of the arts to take their career to the next level. The Mahy Khalifa Art scholarship aims at providing the needed resources and exposure to ambitious young talents, and to help nurture a new generation of artists, art scholars, curators and more. Candidates are requested to apply for the scholarship and to provide all the necessary documents. A committee chooses one candidate a year to receive the Mahy Khalifa Scholarship which will cover all tuition and living expenses.
