StriveTogether, a national nonprofit working to improve education for every child, is offering a scholarship opportunity for current high school seniors and students enrolled in a post-secondary institution in communities served by a partnership in its Cradle to Career Network. Because of the work of TCCC, students in the tri-county region are eligible for the Art Inspires Scholarship.
Students are challenged to create art that symbolizes what educational opportunity and success means to them and conveys StriveTogether’s core values (community, courage, equity, progress and results). StriveTogether will select up to 10 works of art to be featured in its national headquarters in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Selected student artists each will receive a $1,000 scholarship to support coursework at a post-secondary institution in the 2018-2019 academic year. The artwork created through this opportunity will inspire StriveTogether staff and partners daily as they work to achieve the organization’s vision: the success of every child cradle to career.
Applications must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 29, 2018. Each submission must include a video by the artist explaining the piece’s inspiration and meaning as well as a completed scholarship application and proof of enrollment or intent to enroll in a post-secondary institution. Scholarship winners will be notified by June 15, 2018, and receive their prize no later than July 13, 2018.
