A design scholarship can go a long way to making your artistic dreams come true. But that takes a lot of time and money, right? Wrong. If you can’t afford much of either, you’re in luck. Right now, leading creative college Shillington is offering aspiring designers the opportunity to win both a full scholarship in London and half scholarships for its September 2019 full- and part-time graphic design courses at various locations around the globe.
Shillington’s innovative approach to teaching sees students learn the creative process fast. In just three months (full time) or nine months (part-time), Shillington students can be industry-ready and graduate with a polished graphic design portfolio to boot.
If Shillington’s style of study sounds like it suits, the college currently has two incredible opportunities to help boost your creative skillset.
First up, there’s a chance to win 50% off the total cost of fees to the college’s September 2019 graphic design courses (opens in new tab) in New York, London, Manchester, Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.
The perfect partnership
Shillington has also partnered up with Champion, a creative enterprise with a social mission to help young creative talent (under 25s) from disadvantaged backgrounds, to offer one aspirational designer a full scholarship in London.
One successful applicant will receive a 100% scholarship to study graphic design at Shillington (£11,400 value), along with equipment loan and a living bursary..
So what is Shillington looking for? The opportunity to give these potentially life-changing scholarships to people with a passion for design, that’s what. Whether you have zero design experience, want to kickstart your creative career or simply want to hone your skills, a real affection for design and a unique way of presenting it is all you need to apply.
The rules of entry are, there are no rules. Mostly. After answering a short set of questions, super-flexible requirements means how you show the Shillington team why you love design and want to learn from them is entirely up to you. PowerPoint, collage, poetry, Instagram accounts, the choice and, more importantly, creativity is all yours.
You can find full terms and conditions (including extra requirements for New York applicants), plus where to submit your entries over on the Shillington website (opens in new tab). The deadline for submissions to win both the full and half scholarships is Monday 8 July at 1700 (BST).
