Kickstart the process to college, help talented high school students attend a 4-week, intensive Design Camp experience at Kean University.
WITH YOUR HELP...
FIVE truly talented and deserving high school students can attend the fabulous, four-week, Thinking Creatively Design Camp at Kean University.
How do these students get this opportunity?
YOUR contribution to the Camp scholarship fund.
Feel good. Donate any amount. None to small. It all helps.
BUT YOU WANT TO KNOW MORE...
Design Camp is both a career and creative journey. Camp students experience art direction, branding, graphic design, drawing, interior design and architecture, animation, industrial design, video production, photography, and web (and more!). In addition, they learn about team-work, conceptualizing, and critique through lively discussion and hands-on projects guided by visiting professors from the many design disciplines.
The Campers go on field trips to the Museum of Arts and Design in NYC and to professional design studios to meet and talk to field designers. With the Camp experience, the students find their way in design, set goals for college, and walk away with confidence and creative juices flowing!
High school students with art talent don't necessarily understand that their special gifts can provide a pathway into college and, eventually, into rewarding careers. Talented students without financial resources are even less likely to imagine that college could and should be part of their plans. If we can fund scholarships for these students to attend the successful Thinking Creatively Design Camp, a summer camp that explores careers as well as expanding their creative thinking, we may put them on a path to college and career success.
Each $1000 covers tuition, supplies, field trip transportation, museum entrance fees, and lunches, so every $1,000 raised supports one student for the full 4-week camp. 100% of the funds raised will go directly to this project.
WE ARE CLOSE TO $5000 = FIVE STUDENT CAMPERS.
Please help them realize their dream of college and design.
We have made art teachers across New Jersey and neighboring boroughs of New York aware of the possibility of scholarships for the 2014 summer camp. The art teachers are enthusiastic about this possibility for some of their deserving students. Prospective students will be nominated by their art teacher and the students will submit three samples of their creative work (on CD, DVD, or website), along with a short "camp expectations" paragraph statement. So, everything is in place.
As we reach each $1,000 milestone we can give one student a scholarship. If we should be fortunate enough to go past our goal of funding scholarships for four students - that is not a problem! We have room for more! AND YOUR DONATION IS FULLY TAX DEDUCTIBLE.
