Design scholarships open
The Friends of Design — Academy of Digital Arts has announced that applications for its Distinguished Talent Scholarship are now open for the 2019 academic year. These are private bursaries that cover 100% of tuition fees for the chosen candidates, awarded by the academy based entirely on merit to applicants whose talent and creative potential are just too good for its lecturers and selection panellists to resist.
There are four Distinguished Talent Scholarships available for 2019. Each corresponds to one of these full-time courses:
- Graphic design & visual communication
- Web design & motion graphics
- Game graphics & multimedia entertainment
- Concept art
To be eligible, you need to be able to prove that your creative spark has next-level potential and that you have the passion, dedication and commitment to see that potential through. To demonstrate your abilities, you’re going to need a killer portfolio that highlights your talents.
- South African ID/passport
- Matric certificate (or international equivalent)
- Mad creative skills and a mind-blowing portfolio
Once you have a showcase of work ready, email to firstname.lastname@example.org and request the application forms for your chosen course. Make sure to put “Distinguished Talent Scholarship Application” in the subject line.
