Calling all undergraduate and graduate ceramic students’ PROFESSORS!

Dear Ceramics Professors, as you know being a full-time student often prohibits one’s ability to have a full-time job. And, as professors we often hear students who have great ideas, but do not know how to fund them.   The question of the moment . . . Where can students find the resources to support their artistic endeavors?

What if I were to tell you there was money available to support your student’s projects through NCECA?  Well, it’s true; there are several of these awards available to students through the Regina Brown Undergraduate Student Fellowship and the NCECA Graduate Student Fellowship.

Professors . . . please encourage your students to apply before the October 25, 2017 deadline

THE REGINA BROWN UNDERGRADUATE STUDENT FELLOWSHIP

The student must make a project proposal for use of the $1,800.00 award (cannot include payment of tuition) and must submit additional materials as specified in the Application Process. A maximum of three awards may be made, of which $900.00 is mailed following the end of conference. The balance of $900.00 is paid when a project report with images is submitted.

THE NCECA GRADUATE STUDENT FELLOWSHIP

The student must make a project proposal for use of the $2,000.00 award (cannot include payment of tuition) and must submit additional materials as specified in the Application Process. A maximum of three awards may be made, of which $1,000.00 is mailed following the end of conference. The balance of $1000.00 is paid when a project report with images is submitted and approved.

NCECA is thrilled to be able to provide support for students through the Regina Brown Undergraduate Student Fellowship and NCECA Graduate Student FellowshipDeadlines approaching fast, October 25, 2017 (midnight MDT).

    This is in regard to Hiltons call for free money through NCECA (Regina Brown Fund).
    It does not seems in the best of interest to send out a student notice with an eight/nine hour deadline. Same day deadlines notices, especially for students are ill advised. This is just my lazy retired opinion.

    • The Student Directors at Large originally posted about it on August 23. Shortly after the beginning of the semester, they also sent out an email directed at students, one directed at professors, and then they posted another article here on the blog as a reminder about a week or so ago. We’ve posted this on facebook and Instagram. I think I heard that as of Steve’s posting of this last ditch effort to shake students into applying, we only had TWO undergrads who had applied. Dan, do you have any ideas as to what else we could be doing to reach students? I’m flummoxed.
