While I am on the subject of the NCS, it’s a good time again to remind everybody about the scholarships in cartooning that the National Cartoonist Society’s NCS Foundation have available. I am on the Foundation board and involved in both the scholarship and financial committees. These scholarships are exciting as they are some of only a few dedicated to cartooning… a very rare resource for young cartoonists.
Again, the scholarships are not tied to a single school or even to an art major. They are about encouraging young artists to pursue careers in cartooning, be they animators, comic book artists, editorial cartoonists, strip cartoonists… you name it. You apply by filling out an application and sending in 5 samples of your cartooning. The amounts and number of scholarships are up to the Foundation’s discretion, so the more the merrier. The deadline is not until Jan 15th, but there’s no time like the present.
