I want to let you all know that ConceptArt.Org has been given three scholarships to the upcoming program at the Art Department which you all have the ability to make happen.
What this means: Any CA member can nominate students who participate here now. You have the ability to send someone to art school on a full-ride scholarship, giving them opportunity to reach their goals and creative dreams. There are also two half-rides.
Is there someone you want to see make it to art and design college? Are they talented and really wanting to go to art school but just can't afford it? The Art Department is bringing an excellent opportunity for art students who are looking for a way to cover the cost of their education while studying with great teachers and worthy students.
Do you know an artist who is dying to get into school to study Foundations, Illustration, Entertainment Design, Drawing and Painting. Now is your chance to nominate them for scholarship offered exclusively here on ConceptArt.Org by The Art Department.
Nominated Members must have been registered on the CA forums prior to submitting the application to TAD.
Value Forty-Five Thousand Dollars (full ride peoples choice award)
Twenty-Two Thousand Five Hundred Dollars (half ride peoples choice award)
Program Choices: Any
POD location choice: Any (depends on available seating at time of scholarship acceptance though. First come first serve.)
Step 1: All nominated artists (please ask them first if you wish to nominate them) must apply to The Art Department via the online form available by clicking the APPLY button atop www.theartdepartment.org They will need to submit their artwork per below. You must post their CA username and 1 sample of their work here in this thread you are reading now for their nomination to be official. Please do not do so until they give you approval though ok?
b. The nominated Student applies to TAD following the easy portfolio and application process here: www.theartdepartment.org (click the apply button and you are good to go).
c. Finally, the nominated students posts their portfolio and a one paragraph (five sentences minimum) short essay on why they want the scholarship to TAD. This must be posted here prior to March 1 2010. Judging will occur until March 15. Here is the thread for nominated artists who have completed their application. http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=181148
*This is an additional chance at scholarships. Those nominated will also be considered for the remaining 1.8 million in scholarships (both the full-rides and the partial rides)
**If you want to be nominated you must find someone else to do so.
Best of luck to you all!
The Art Department
