Don’t forget about the many resources the Fiber department provides for its majors, one of them being the Competitions and Scholarships binder in the resource room. This binder is stuffed full of calls for artists, (almost 50) all accepting fiber based work and we are still adding to them as new ones come out!! A good portion of the calls are for competitions who ONLY accept fiber based work and a few just for quilts!! One call is for the National Fiber Directions Exhibition juried by our own Pauline Verbeek-Cowart, with a grand prize of $7,500!!!! If you’re not interested in shows there are quite a few applications for residencies, nationally and internationally and a few scholarships. Even if you think you don’t have time now to spend on an application, look through them anyway, many deadlines are over winter break so you will have plenty of time to apply, and a lot of the calls don’t require much at all, sometimes an email with just a few images and a resume!! So start applying everything you need is right at your fingertips!
