Sub Pop Loser Scholarship Returns For 2013
Sub Pop Records aren't just one of the most consistent and coolest labels of the last 25 years (25 already??) They're also some of the coolest, kindest, and worldly people you'll meet, and I speak from experience. Alongside everything they already do, they offer a yearly arts scholarship to high school seniors, and this year is no exception. Read the full press release below and get on it!
Sub Pop Records in Seattle, WA is offering a grand total of $13,000 worth of college scholarship money to three eligible high school seniors. There are three scholarships—one for $6,000, one for $4,000 and one for $3,000. To apply for these scholarships you must be a resident of Washington or Oregon, and a graduating senior on your way to full-time enrollment at an accredited university or college. We are looking for an applicant who is involved and/or interested in music and/or the creative arts in some way.
To apply for these scholarships we would like you to submit an essay, no longer than one page, letting us know about one or more of the following topics:
What are you doing in the arts/music field in your community?
How and/or why did you become interested in artistic outlets?
How would this scholarship money help you to progress in your chosen field?
What are your influences and/or who inspires you? Who are some of your favorite bands or artists?
Applicants are strongly encouraged to send digital links and/or provide hard copies of their artwork along with their essay (we have never had a winner who submitted only an essay). However, please be aware that Sub Pop will not return any of this material, so please don’t send originals. Sub Pop will give equal opportunity to all applicants who fit the criteria outlined above. The deadline for applications is May 15th.
Please send all submissions and attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 6th, 2013. We will announce the scholarship winners on May 20th.
