Cash-strapped creatives who already have a Bachelors: Wouldn’t it be fantastic to pursue a graduate design education without having to stress out about the tuition? Well, good news, as today the Cranbrook Academy of Art announced they’ve launched a new fellowship program with full tuition coverage. Their Director’s Fellowship Program has five slots available for the 2019-20 academic year, with potential for renewal for a second year.
“We created this program to recognize creative excellence in art, design, and architecture,” said Susan R. Ewing, Director of Cranbrook Academy of Art. “Cranbrook is built upon a foundation of pioneering artists, designers, and architects, and it is the intention of this program to continue to fill our spaces with top talent that reflects the diverse nature of these fields.”
Those of you who are ID-focused will have to have a little patience; for this first run, fellowships will be awarded only to students in the Architecture, Fiber, Metalsmithing, Photography and Print Media departments. But for the 2020-21 academic year, fellowships will be awarded to students in the 2D Design, 3D Design, 4D Design, Ceramics, Painting, and Sculpture departments.
They’re only taking applications for the next 20 days. Be sure to beat their February 1, 2019 deadline by applying here.
