The NoRA Excellence in Art Activism Scholarship
The #NoRA Excellence in Art Activism Scholarship is a one-time $5,000 scholarship awarded to a graduating High School Senior or student currently enrolled in a baccalaureate program who uses art to engage in gun violence prevention. Students must present a portfolio of art, music, writing, or other artistic endeavor and a detailed explanation of how it is used to enact social change around gun violence prevention.
Complete the form below including a digital link to your portfolio. Your portfolio should include at least 3 but no more than 10 works of visual art, poetry, short writing, songs, or films. For longer form written work, please include a 20-page portfolio or book excerpt. For longer-form musical or film compositions, please include a 20-minute excerpt.
In addition, please complete the form below and email a copy of your high school transcript, two (2) letters of recommendation, and your most current college transcript (if a current college student) by the application deadline.
Application Deadline: 11:59 PM (ET) on December 31, 2019.
We expect this to be a highly competitive scholarship, and as such we regret we are unable to consider applications for which all requested materials are not received by the application deadline.
