Scholarship Alert: Tom Joyner launches scholarship for art students
The Tom Joyner Foundation has announced that it will offer a scholarship for Arts majors at Historically Black Collegiate Universities.
The TJF Fine Arts Scholarships Program will provide two (2) deserving students at HBCUs a $1,000 scholarship from the Foundation. The program is funded with money from a portion of the proceeds from the art sales on the 2014 Tom Joyner Foundation Fantastic Voyage.
Full-time students in good academic standing at HBCUs who are majoring in art, fine arts or art education are eligible to apply. Funds will be awarded for the 2014 fall semester. Applications may be submitted today. The deadline is May 3, 2014. Winners are expected to be announced May 15, 2014.
Students who are visual arts majors must submit a link to a sample of one piece of their artwork or photography, including the name of the piece, the inspiration behind the work and if a painting or sketch, the medium.
“HBCUs have always been a haven for minority artists for decades and have been part of all of our 14 Fantastic Voyages,” said Tom Joyner, founder and chairman of the Tom Joyner Foundation. “This new scholarship program is investing in the next great African-American artist.”
