Description of Program The Warren MacKenzie Advancement Award provides an opportunity for students and emerging artists to continue their ceramic research and education for a period of up to twelve consecutive months within a grant year, further expanding their professional development. This award is available to current undergraduate or graduate students, recent graduates (within one year), or those who have complete a university-equivalent training in ceramics (including apprenticeships) within the year prior to the application deadline. During the grant year, the recipients can research a new technique or process, study with a mentor or in an apprenticeship setting, travel to other ceramic art centers or institutions for classes and workshops, collaborate with artists of another media, and travel. Proposals to fund large capital equipment purchases will not be accepted; however, a portion of the award request (no more than 10%) can be earmarked for materials and equipment necessary to the project. Between one and three cash awards will be made yearly, up to $4,000 each.
Conditions/Public Service Requirements Recipients contribute project updates to NCC’s social media and are required to give a public presentation at their school or another institution.
