Caldo is proud to provide the Frijol Feasts Community Scholarship for high school seniors and college freshmen!
In true Frijol Feasts spirit, Caldo provides this opportunity for young artists for young artists! Applicants must apply under a two-part process. The first part of that process includes a written application. Completed applications will be reviewed by the Caldo Collective and two jurors who have professonal backgrounds in the arts. If an application is selected, students must attend an orientation to prepare a presentation for an audience of 100 community members. Students will go before the audience of community members to present their ideas about how art can shape our communities and the world. The community will vote to elect the young artist whose ideas they like best. The young artist who is elected will receive the Frijol Feasts Community Scholarship, an unrestricted award ranging from $1,500 to $5,500!
Applicants are required to download, complete and submit an application. In addtition, each applicant must submit a letter of intent, resume, signed/verified copy of current high school or college transcript and, if available, 3-5 work samples in .jpeg, .pdf, .doc, .mov, and/or .mp3 format.
