2020–2021 Scholarship and Honorable Mention Recipients
This year, 13 scholarships and 11 honorable mentions awards were granted to applicants whose work focuses on social, environmental, and cultural impact. Each student has demonstrated talent along with a commitment to giving back to their community through their work. They are advocating for social and environmental reform; addressing the stigmas of mental health and racism; founding nonprofits to uplift young artists; promoting sustainability, higher education, and food justice; producing digital content for substance-free spaces created by and for queer artists; advocating for body positivity among women; informing people of the struggle and the beauty that is being black; focusing on the manifestation of identity to show the consistently powerful presence of the black figure; giving impoverished youth a voice; curating narrative-based visual pieces to educate and combat cultural erasure in the media and entertainment industry; and more. We are thrilled to announce this year's recipients!
Thank you to our panel of jurors!
