Tombow Announces Second Annual Create Your Best Work Art Scholarship
ATLANTA – Tombow is proud to announce the second annual Create Your Best Work Art Scholarship to aid two promising art students with tuition costs.
Tombow’s Create Your Best Work Art Scholarship is available to high school seniors graduating by May 2020 and college freshmen and sophomores in the United States. To qualify, students must be currently enrolled or accepted and seeking a visual arts degree at a U.S. university, college or art school.
“We are thrilled to offer our Create Your Best Work Art Scholarship for the second year,” said Director of Marketing Cathy Daniel. “The talent pool for our first year was incredible, so we can’t wait to see the entries we receive for 2020.”
The top two applicants will be awarded non-renewable scholarships to be used toward tuition, fees, books, supplies and equipment required by the educational institution for the upcoming school year starting in Fall 2020.
The grand prize winner will receive a $5,000 scholarship, and one runner-up will receive a $2,500 scholarship. Tombow will notify scholarship recipients, and distribution of the scholarship will be made directly to each recipient.
Scholarship recipients will also receive a package of Tombow products for use in their works, with an approximate retail value of $500. In addition, the high school that the student graduated from will receive a package of Tombow products, with an approximate retail value of $500.
Product-only awards in the amount of $100 will be made to five additional runners-up. Awards will be distributed in June 2020.
Application deadline for the scholarship is March 1, 2020 – applications should be submitted digitally and include a portfolio, artist’s statement, letter(s) of recommendation and transcripts. Students can download applications and find more information about applying at TombowUSA.com.
