SGCI Student Fellowships are awarded to individuals who exhibit outstanding promise in the fine art practice of printmaking. Students may self-nominate but must have a faculty sponsor/nominator submit a letter of support. In order to be considered, these students and the institutional representative nominating them, must be members in good standing.
Note: This year there is no restriction on the number of students who be nominated from any one institution, although the SGCI Awards committee may seek a ranking of applicants from the same institution from the institutional representative(s).
To apply for a SGC International Student Award, students must collect the following in a SINGLE, MULTI-PAGE PDF FILE:
- The application form (download here for Word) or (here for PDF)
- 8 images (1 per page). Label each page/image with your name, title, media, size and date
- Proposal (maximum 1000 words) outlining the project that the fellowship will be used for. This should include an abstract, methodology, timeline and budget.
- Faculty sponsor letter of support (nomination).
Applications without a support letter will not be reviewed.
Additionally, applications must include a letter of support from a faculty member at the student’s institution. This may be sent separately or (preferably) included in the application PDF
Send Completed PDF applications to email@example.com
The recipients of the SGCI Student Fellowships are presented at the awards ceremony, by the SGCI president. The award is $500 for the undergraduate student and $1000 for the graduate student.
SGCI Student Fellowship recipients will be recognized at the following year’s award ceremony and will be afforded all possible opportunities to be listed in conference and council publications and the website. SGCI will also make every effort to create exhibition opportunities for student award recipients at the subsequence SGCI conference (please note, however, that this is not always possible). Student fellowship winners will provide the archives with digital documentation of work accomplished.
Upon notification, recipients are responsible for written acknowledgement accepting the award along with updated contact information; a short bio and a portrait photograph (no larger that 150 dpi, 4”x 5”) for publicity purposes.
