  • Scholarship Description
  • Sub Pop Records in Seattle, WA is offering a grand total of $15,000 worth of college scholarship money to three eligible high school seniors. There are three scholarships - one for $7,000, one for $5,000 and one for $3,000. As longtime and proud losers ourselves, we're exceedingly happy to be able, in some small way, to help further the education of art-enthused misfits from the NW.

    Applicants must be a resident of Washington or Oregon, and a graduating senior on your way to full-time enrollment at an accredited university or college. We are looking for applicants who are involved and/or interested in music and/or the creative arts in some way. However, you do not need to be pursuing an education in the arts.

    To apply you must submit an essay, one page or less, using any combination of the following questions as a guide (or write something completely your own, be inspired and creative!) Please list the school you are graduating from and the school you plan to attend in the fall at the top of your essay along with your contact information.

    -What are you doing in the arts/music field in your community?
    -What does being a Sub Pop 'Loser' mean to you?
    -What are your influences and/or who inspired you to become involved in the arts?
    -Describe your biggest failure and explain how it has brought you closer to your goal(s)
    -Discuss a special attribute or accomplishment that sets you apart
    -How has your family or community background affected the way you see the world?

    Applicants are strongly encouraged to send digital links and/or provide hard copies of their artwork along with their essay (we have never had a winner who submitted only an essay). However, please be aware that Sub Pop will not return any of this material, so please don't send originals. Sub Pop will give equal opportunity to all applicants who fit the criteria outlined above. All submissions and attachments must be emailed to the scholarship provider.

    For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.

"OK to Be White" Signs a "Sign of the Times"?

November 7, 2017

by Susan Dutca

"It's okay to be white" signs were scattered on college campuses across the country, as well as in Canada over the past week. Reportedly, the signs were first suggested on an online chat forum called 4chan, calling on people to place posters in their area on Halloween night. At Harvard Law School, at least 20 handmade stickers with the message "It's ok to be white" were posted on light poles and electrical boxes. Harvard Law's Dean of Students Marcia Sells condemned the posters, stating the posters and stickers are "intended to divide us from one another" and that "HLS will not let that happen here." The Department of Public Works removed the stickers shortly thereafter. Even after they had been removed, the message continued to circulate via social media through hashtags and videos, gaining both condemnation and support. [...]
