From the National Cartoonists Society Foundation:

Are you a college cartoonist? Don’t delay, the deadline for the Jay Kennedy Memorial Scholarship is right around the corner. All entries must be postmarked by FEBRUARY 7, 2018. You could win $5000 for your education and a trip to the annual National Cartoonists Society’s Reuben Awards Convention in May. Please visit

The annual Jay Kennedy Memorial 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. 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 2018-2019 academic year. Applicants do not have to be art majors to be eligible for this scholarship. 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.
