Art and Technology Prize for Students ($500) – The Lumen Prize

Do you create art deeply immersed in coding, gifs, fractals, or other electronic formats? If so, this prize is for you…

Students interested in the intersection of art and technology should learn more about the Lumen Prize with a single cash award of $500. Over the last decade, this UK-based charity has been awarding cash prizes in recognition of innovative works combining art and technology. One caveat: students must be enrolled in a BA, MFA, BFA, MA or equivalent program (which means you can start work on a project now and submit it in a few years, after transfer!).

While there is no cost to enter, there are only 100 submissions allowed world-wide, so plan ahead for a June deadline each year and submit early. A particularly significant aspect of this prize is that finalists who don’t win are encouraged to connect with other artists associated with Lumen, allowing for a great opportunity for you to meet other talented artists.

This year, submissions are due on June 21, 2021.

Paying for college…via scholarships

Common student concerns regarding paying for college can be addressed by the above book (and others) by Gen and Kelly Tanabe. Not only have they done great research but they also completely funded their own Harvard undergrad education via scholarships. Added benefit of winning scholarships? Great additions to your resumé to improve your transfer application. A super website to jumpstart your scholarship search: cappex.com
