Each year the International Sculpture Center presents an award competition to its member colleges and universities as a means of supporting, encouraging, and recognizing the work of young sculptors and their supporting schools’ faculty and art program.  The Student Award winners participate in an exhibition at Grounds For Sculpture, as well as a traveling exhibition hosted by arts organizations across the country.  Winners’ work is also featured in Sculpture magazine.  Each winner receives a one-year membership at the ISC and all winners are eligible to apply for a full sponsored residency to study in Switzerland.  This year’s jury includes Rocio Aranda-Alvarado, Oliver Herring and Creighton Michael.

To nominate students for this competition, the nominees’ university must first be an ISC University level member.  University Membership costs $200 for universities in the USA, Canada and Mexico, or $220 for international universities, and includes a number of benefits.  Students who are interested should talk to their professors about getting involved.  To find out more about the program please visit the website www.sculpture.org or email studentawards@sculpture.org
