The Lantos Foundation for Human Rights & Justice is proud to offer this scholarship opportunity to New Hampshire high school seniors with an interest in human rights and activism through the arts. The Activist Artist Scholarship was launched as an annual competition dedicated to the work of Activist Artists all over the world. All applicants will be challenged to examine the influence of a particular Activist Artist and show how that artist used his/her medium to influence, inform and inspire during their lifetime or beyond.
This year, scholarships will be awarded in the following 2 categories:
1) We encourage applicants to examine the influence of a particular Activist Artist and write a 600-1,000 word essay that shows how that artist used his/her medium to influence, inform, and inspire action on human rights during their lifetime or beyond.
2)This category provides students with the opportunity to show the same influence and inspiration by submitting an original piece of art, music, dance, or written form of original work focused on a human rights issue. Rather than an essay, they will be required to submit a 250-500 word “museum plaque” explanation of their work.
