All you need to do to apply for the scholarship is fill out this form right here. In this form, you will be asked to provide a link to 5 different pieces of art that you would like submit for consideration. You will also be asked to tell us why you think you would be a good recipient for this scholarship. That’s it! After you fill out the form, you will receive a link via email that will allow you to edit your submission as many times as you want.


  • Submit only once. (You can edit your submission as much as you want. But if you submit multiple applications, all of your submissions will be discarded.)
  • Make sure the art you link to is in jpg/gif format, and between 800-2000 pixels on the longest side. (If you link us to a PSD, a ridiculously large file, or a non-public file, your entry will be discarded.)

We will stop accepting application at the end of the day, Sunday, April 15th, so don’t delay!
