PNCA Celebrates 2014 Departmental Merit Scholars

thumbnail

PNCA awards 46 Departmental Merit Scholarships in recognition of student achievement and excellence.

PNCA students are designers, illustrators, painters, photographers, filmmakers, builders, welders, story-spinners, sculptors, performers, and makers. They tackle questions around sustainability and media consumption (for example) and work with materials as diverse as wood, sound, and mylar balloons. Sometimes all at once. They pursue entrepreneurial success, maintain thriving freelance careers alongside their schoolwork, and connect with clients and collaborators both in Portland and around the country. They think critically, push boundaries, and make opportunities.

Each Spring, PNCA pauses to recognize student excellence and achievement. The Departmental Merit Scholarships are awarded by the faculty in each of the College’s 4 majors and 10 concentrations, and recognize student successes within a department. This year, the PNCA faculty is proud to award 46 scholarships and awards.
