2013 Borderless Art Scholarship

About Imagining More
Non-profit Imagining More is an Organization that promotes arts and athletics amongst young women. It was born from the limitations that young women face when pursuing extracurricular activities during their high school and college years. Through different projects in the US and Mexico, our mission is to serve as an instrument for young women who wish to develop in the arts and sports as well as to create awareness about the uniqueness of being a female athlete.

Although arts and athletics are not a typically promoted combination, we feel that the two complement each other to form a well rounded student athlete.

The Contest
Imagining More is happy to announce its first annual Borderless Art Scholarship to promote interdisciplinary pursuits amongst arts and athletics. All female students enrolled in their senior year of high school are welcome to submit a proposal for an art project that best exemplifies the essence of being a female athlete.

Two contest winners will be provided a stipend of $500 dollars to develop a project that will later be exhibited during the 2013 Borderless Art Exhibit, to be held in the spring of 2013. In addition to creating new pieces of art, scholarship recipients will be asked to write a one page essay about their work and how it relates to their experiences as a young female pursuing both arts and athletics.

At the spring show, Imagining More will also award an additional scholarship of $1,500 dollars towards college tuition for the 2013-2014 academic year. Artwork produced through this project will become property of Imagining More.

Submissions and Entry Form
Entries are limited to female students completing their senior year of high school in San Francisco, CA. and San Luis Potosi, MEX. Along with the 2013 Borderless Art Scholarship Application Form and project proposal, entrants should submit three JPEG files of previous work. Submissions are limited to film, painting and photography. Applications should be sent via email to contact@imaginingmore.org.
