It’s that time of year again! Time for all your college students interested in cartooning to send in your submissions for the Jay Kennedy Memorial Scholarship! :
Jay Kennedy Scholarship
The annual Jay Kennedy Scholarship, in memory of the late King Features editor, was funded by an initial $100,000 grant from the Hearst Foundation/King Features Syndicate and additional generous donations from Jerry Scott, Jim Borgman, Patrick McDonnell and many other prominent cartoonists. Submissions are adjudicated by a panel of top cartoonists and an award is given to the best college cartoonist. The recipient is feted at the annual NCS Reuben Awards Convention attended by many of the world’s leading cartoonists.
Applicants must be students at a 4-year college in the United States, Canada or Mexico who will be a Junior or Senior during the 2012-2013 academic year. Applicants do not have to be art majors to be eligible for this scholarship.
Along with a completed entry form, applicants are required to send 8 samples of their own cartooning artwork (copies only); noting if and where the work has been published, either in print or on the web. (See application for details.) DO NOT send original artwork.
DEADLINE: ENTRIES MUST BE POSTMARKED BY DECEMBER 15, 2011
The applications will be judged by the National Cartoonists Society Foundation (NCSF) and the number of scholarships given out and their amounts will be at the discretion of the NCSF.
If you know of any college students who are cartoonists, whether that is their field of study or not, please let them know about this opportunity. The Jay Kennedy Scholarship has helped several talented artists pay for their schooling, and the more who apply, the merrier! Click here for more info!
