Houston's art and food scenes earn it #7 slot in the New York Times list of places to visit in 2013. Get your Early Bird Registration discount on NCECA's 47th Annual Conference before it expires at midnight EST, Jan 16.
The deadline for NCECA's 2013 undergraduate and graduate fellowships is Wednesday, January 16. The goal of these fellowships is to recognize and support promising students who are striving to expand their creative inquiry through independent and/ or creative development beyond the scope of the programs in which they are enrolled. 2013 will be the 14th consecutive year that NCECA presents Regina Brown Undergraduate Student Fellowship Awards at its annual conference. In 2005, NCECA inaugurated the NCECA Graduate Student Fellowship Awards.
Applicants must be NCECA Members who are full-time undergraduate students or full-time graduate students matriculating in a degree-granting program in an accredited undergraduate or graduate program in the U.S. at the time of the deadline. Undergraduate students must have attained the classification of at least a junior or its equivalent in order to be eligible for the Regina Brown Undergraduate Student Fellowship.
Applications must be supported by two (2) letters of recommendation: one from a current instructor and one from another instructor or professional ceramist. The student must make a project proposal for use of the award funds (cannot include payment of tuition) and must submit additional materials as specified in the Application Details. A maximum of three undergraduate and three graduate awards may be made each year.
Successful candidates receive partial award payments following the annual conference. The remaining portion is paid following completion of the successful applicant's project and delivery of a report.
Since its inception, the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts has sought to advance the stature and quality of the ceramics field by stimulating creativity and professionalism. One of the ways NCECA accomplishes this is to recognize individuals whose service, creative achievement and passionate commitment have shaped visions of excellence in ceramic art and education. Join NCECA in Houston in March 2013 when awards are presented to these accomplished and inspiring individuals.
