Sierra Nevada College
Dear Applicant for the K – 12 NCECA Ceramics Show, We’re excited to collaborate with the National K-12 Exhibition Foundation, Inc. to offer this scholarship opportunity for the K-12 high school exhibit applicants. Sierra Nevada College has a strong ceramics and Fine Arts program. We hope that you will consider applying to SNC where we offer small classes and talented faculty. The ceramics scholarship is for an annual renewable award in the amount of $10,000.00 that will help meet your cost of attendance at SNC. This scholarship will renew for up to four years (eight consecutive semesters) of full-time undergraduate enrollment, for a total scholarship award of $40,000. In order to be considered for the scholarship, please submit a portfolio, which should consist of 5 – 15 images of your artwork. It does not have to be exclusively ceramics, it can be created in any medium. This may be submitted in the form of a digital portfolio sent via email, or on a cd. If you would like to bring work to SNC, we can arrange for a campus visit too. Upon receipt of your portfolio, we’ll contact you to set up a phone interview, or an interview in person. We are looking for hard working, serious art students, who are committed to a liberal arts education. Please note, as a Sierra Nevada Art Scholarship recipient, you must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) annually. The maximum annual Art Scholarship cannot exceed the total amount of undergraduate tuition and fees. If you qualify for federal grants, such as the Pell Grant or a state grant, such as the Nevada Millennium Scholarship, your Art scholarship will be equal to the difference between those awards and the annual cost of tuition and fees at Sierra Nevada College. You can apply to SNC online at no charge at . Please state on your application that you were an applicant to the K-12 ceramics show.
