High-school inhabitants of the Pacific Northwest! Are you musically-inclined? Do you think of yourself as a creative artist? Are you a senior on your way to higher education at an accredited university? Then Sub Pop wants you to apply for their 2014 Loser Scholarship award. There are three scholarships available — one for $7,000, one for $5,000, and one for $3,000. The scholarship should be regarded as a worthwhile exercise for all high-schoolers interested in making strides in the Seattle music scene.
To be considered for the award, you should submit a one-page essay answering the one or more of the following questions:
- What are you doing in the arts/music field in your community?
- How and why did you become interested in artistic outlets?
- How would this scholarship money help you to progress in your chosen field?
- What are your influences and who inspires you? Who are some of your favorite bands or artists?
Additionally, you should send Sub Pop digital links or hard copies of your artwork for consideration.
More information can be found here. But, hurry up losers! The deadline for applications is May 8th, 2014.
