Press Release (ePRNews.com) - SAN FRANCISCO, CA - May 19, 2016 - Lang Antique & Estate Jewelry is proud to announce the launch of the first-ever Fine Arts Scholarship for incoming college freshman or current undergraduate and graduate students.
Each applicant is required to submit an essay of 500 words or less describing an example of how he or she was inspired by a work of art from the past, and describe how it influences his or her present day artistic style. In addition, the applicant is asked to give his or her opinion on what style or technique in today’s art world will be the most popular in the future. The essay does not have to be about jewelry in particular, but can be drawn from any of the fine arts – painting, sculpture, music, dance, or another creative aspect of art.
“We believe that scholarships can give students motivation to pursue their dreams with less worry about tuition and other school-related expenses.”
All applicants must submit their essay online through the Lang Antiques Scholarship Form by Aug. 31, 2016. One student will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship, and will be notified via email about two weeks after the deadline for submissions.
“At Lang, we know that saving up for school can be tough,” said Suzanne Martinez, owner of Lang Antique & Estate Jewelry. “We believe that scholarships can give students motivation to pursue their dreams with less worry about tuition and other school-related expenses.”
The winning essay will be judged on the content, style, creativity, and how persuasively the applicant presents his or her point of view. After the deadline of August 31, 2016, all entries will be reviewed, and the winning essay will subsequently be selected by a panel of three judges.
All submissions are subject to the Guidelines for the Lang Antiques Fine Arts Scholarship.
