Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Graduate Arts Award

In February 2012, Brooklyn College will be able to nominate two of its seniors or recent graduates
(from within the last five years) for the Jack Kent Cooke Graduate Arts
Award, which is worth up to $50,000 per year for up to three years. To
quote from the Foundation’s press release,

"The Jack Kent Cooke Graduate Arts Award will enable students who have
significant artistic merit and outstanding academic achievement to complete
a graduate degree in the visual arts, performing arts, or creative writing.
It will provide funding for tuition, room, board, required fees, and books.
The Foundation anticipates awarding 10 scholarships in 2011, with more
scholarships possible in subsequent years. Artistic disciplines eligible for
the award include music, performing arts (including dance and theater),
visual arts (including film, painting, sculpture, and photography) and
creative writing."

Students eligible for the Jack Kent Cooke Graduate Arts Award must be
nominated by their undergraduate institution by February 9, 2011. For
additional information and eligibility requirements, please visit:

Attached to this message, please find the complete press release for the
award, as well as a flyer and a poster to help publicize this extraordinary
opportunity for Brooklyn College’s students in the arts.

I have volunteered to serve as Brooklyn College’s faculty representative to
the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation, and I would be glad to answer any questions
that students may have about the application process. Please note that the
internal deadline for applications is February 1, 2012. After that date,
two applicants will be selected as nominees from Brooklyn College.

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Kind regards,
David Grubbs
