The deadline for the Jay Kennedy Scholarship is approaching (February 6) and
we'd like your help to get the word out. If you can, please post this on
your website or blog. If you can put up a semi-permanent link, you'll find
link art on the site too. (Please note that we have new URL from next year.)

The annual Jay Kennedy Scholarship, in memory of the late King Features
editor, was funded by an initial $100,000 grant from the Hearst
Foundation/King Features Syndicate and additional generous donations from
Jerry Scott, Jim Borgman, Patrick McDonnell and many other prominent
cartoonists. Submissions are adjudicated by a panel of top cartoonists and
an award is given to the best college cartoonist. The recipient is feted at
the annual NCS Reuben Awards Convention attended by many of the world's
leading cartoonists. It is being held this year in LA.

Applicants must be college students in the United States, Canada or Mexico
that will be in their Junior or Senior year of college during the 2009-2010
academic year. Applicants DO NOT have to be art majors to be eligible for
this scholarship.

Along with a completed entry form, applicants are required to send 5
samples of their own cartooning artwork; noting if and where the work has
been published (either print or web).Please send copies. DO NOT send
original artwork.


The applications will be judged by the National Cartoonists Society
Foundation (NCSF) and the number of scholarships given out and their amounts
will be at the discretion of the NCSF.
