In 2005, NCECA added the NCECA Graduate Student Fellowships. NCECA is pleased to announce the 12th NCECA Graduate Student Fellowships. They will be presented next spring at our annual conference in Kansas City, Missouri. NCECA’s purpose is to promote and improve the ceramic arts through education, research and creative practice.
The student must make a project proposal for use of the $2,000.00 award (cannot include payment of tuition) and must submit additional materials as specified in the Application Process. A maximum of three awards may be made, of which $1,000.00 is mailed following the end of conference. The balance of $1000.00 is paid when a project report with images is submitted and approved.
In order to be considered for a Student Fellowship, eligible persons must be a current NCECA Student Member. Membership is a standalone annual fee. NCECA Membership fees are not included in any event registration. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to verify your Membership status. CLICK HERE to Join Now or Renew your membership.
