The Loerie Awards is calling for applicants for the annual Creative Future Scholarship, which will enable a talented student from a disadvantaged background to attend a tertiary institution to further their creative studies.
Entries for the Creative Future Scholarship are now open to Grade 12 students with financial need from Gauteng, Western Cape and KwaZulu-Natal. Teachers must fill in the forms, which can be downloaded from www.theloerieawards.co.za, on behalf of their students and submit them no later than 5 June 2009. Finalists will be invited to a judging session involving a review of their portfolios, a creative challenge and an intensive interview.
The winner of the 2009 Creative Future Scholarship will be announced at The Loerie Awards in Cape Town during The Loerie Awards Festival Weekend which takes places from 24 to 27 September 2009.
The scholarship is a collaboration with the Woolworths Making the Difference Through Design programme, which was launched as an educational initiative in 2006. The programme furthers awareness of and provides the tools to assist in teaching design as a school subject, and formed the perfect platform from which to reach potential candidates for the Creative Future Scholarship.
