No, not more writing about comics — a way for cartooning students to pay for school! Entries must be postmarked by this Wednesday, December 15, 2010, so enter quickly if you qualify. In memory of Jay Kennedy, a King Features editor, the National Cartoonists Society Foundation has a $5000 scholarship available. Here are some details, with more available at the link:
Submissions are adjudicated by a panel of top cartoonists, and an award is given to the best college cartoonist. The recipient is feted at the annual NCS Reuben Awards Convention, attended by many of the world’s leading cartoonists. Applicants must be college students in the United States, Canada, or Mexico that will be in their Junior or Senior year of college during the 2010-2011 academic year. Applicants do not have to be art majors to be eligible for this scholarship. Along with a completed entry form, applicants are required to send 8 samples of their own cartooning artwork (copies only); noting if and where the work has been published, either in print or on the web.
