Lantos Foundation Activist Artist Scholarship


January 08, 2022

Awards Available: 3

  • Scholarship Description
  • The Activist Artist Scholarship was launched in 2020 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, or alternatively, to create their own piece of activist art.

    Eligibility Requirements: Scholarship eligibility will be limited to graduating high school seniors who are residents of New Hampshire and intend to enter a 2-year or 4-year undergraduate degree program in the fall of the year the scholarship is awarded.

    The Activist Artist Scholarship winner will receive a $5,000 award payable to his/her intended college or university. Up to two runner-up awards will be awarded in the amount of $2,500 each, payable to the intended college or university.

    Each Activist Artist Scholarship applicant must fill out the general information form on our website.

    Each applicant is asked to submit a copy of a piece of “Activist Art” and prepare a 600-1000 word essay that describes the piece and its importance. The following questions are intended to serve as guide points for the essay:

    Discuss your chosen piece of “Activist Art”. How did it further the intended cause? How did it differ in its composition or impact from the artists’ other works or attempts at activism during the same period? What impact did this work have on public opinion or on other activists at the time? Did it influence later public opinion on the issue? How did this piece impact you personally?

    Alternatively, in lieu of the essay outlined above, applicants may choose to create and submit their own original piece of Activist Art. If you choose to submit original art, please include a digital submission (photograph, video, sound file, etc.) and a 250-500 word “museum plaque” style explanation of your piece. Your “museum plaque” should include what cause your piece is focused on, how it delivers the intended message, and what impact you believe it can have. For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.

Avoid Student Debt at Colleges with No Student Loans

February 25, 2021

by Izzy Hall

Here at Scholarships.com, we connect students with scholarships that can help alleviate the amount of student loans they need to take out to pay for college. But there are colleges out there that offer students such generous financial aid packages that they need to take out very little in loans if at all. These “no student loans” colleges replace student loans in financial aid packages with additional scholarships and grants to help fund a student’s tuition. Students accepted into these schools will pay much less than the cost of tuition and thus will not be as burdened with student debt. [...]
