Read about the Process:
The Scholarship Committee is composed of Betty Rexford, Sharon Ford and Sue Ann's Daffara

For those who have submitted an application,
 
Interviews scheduled: TBD for March 2020
at the Rancho Bernardo Library upstairs Community Room, 17110 Bernardo Center Dr.
Please bring your portfolio with eight pieces of original work.

The committee meets with each applicant. The interviews consist of two major parts: 
In the first part of the interview, discussion of the completed application form, which gives information on the colleges and universities that the applicant has pursued and/or been accepted to, financial support approaches, his/her vocational goals, personal history in art both formally and informally, the influence of others, and involvement in organizations -school clubs, involvement in creative and practical arts, athletics, awards, theater, science fair, and hobbies. During the interview, applicants are given the opportunity to add pertinent information concerning special needs within the family, and it ends with an invitation to "brag on themselves" and to say why they should receive a scholarship.

In the second part of the interview, the student shares his/her work with the committee. 
Each applicant is asked to bring eight of his/her best work. No computer generated images. These should demonstrate a range of different subject matter, media and approach, to show the student's interests and talents. The discussion centers on the background of the choice, the reasons for creating the piece, and what the artist was trying to achieve.

Each interview takes approximately thirty minutes.

The final stage in the scholarship selection process follows this course of action:

Each committee member individually reviews her notes and gives a preliminary ranking to all the applicants.

The committee meets to confer on this ranking. The discussion includes individual response to each applicant, referral to photos of the artwork taken at the time of the interview and subsequent adjustment, where necessary, to reach a consensus.
Students are then notified . Each applicant is contacted. Those who have not been awarded a scholarship are encouraged to continue to develop their skills and to persevere towards reaching their goals.


Scholarships are awarded at Scholarships will be presented at our annual Spring Fling at the RB Library upstairs Community Room, where you will be invited to exhibit your artwork, Sunday, April 28th, as well as at your school's end-of -year award ceremony, if available.
