Jack Kent Cooke Graduate Arts Award

Planning to start a master’s degree program in the visual arts, performing arts, or creative writing in fall 2013? Current Plymouth State University seniors and graduates from the past five years (2008-2012) are eligible to apply for a Jack Kent Cooke Graduate Arts Award. The award covers up to $50,000 of unmet financial need for up to three years of graduate study in an approved degree program. Up to 15 awards will be granted for 2013.

The application process has two stages. The first stage involves online submission of a portfolio (art work, sound files, videos, writing examples according to discipline) and supporting documents. Portfolio and supporting documents must be submitted by November 28, 2012. Submissions will be evaluated and semi-finalists will be named by Plymouth State’s Jack Kent Cooke Graduate Arts Awards Committee. Semi-finalists will then move to Stage II of the application process which requires additional document submissions and a formal nomination by the Awards Committee. Up to two semi-finalists may be nominated.
