StriveTogether launched the Art Inspires Scholarship in spring 2018 to support student artists in their educational journeys. Students created artwork that reflected StriveTogether’s core values: community, courage, equity, progress, and results. Five winners received a $1,000 scholarship and now have their artwork displayed in StriveTogether’s Cincinnati headquarters.

This year, to help additional students pay for their schooling and associated costs, StriveTogether is launching the scholarship again, searching for more creative students to receive this prize and for more original artwork to exhibit in our offices. The artwork created will inspire StriveTogether staff and partners each day as they work to achieve the organization’s vision: the success of every child from cradle to career.

At our 2018 national conference, we were inspired by Christian Paige, a talented spoken word poet, first-generation college student, and educator. At the conference, he performed two poems. His poem “Trees” speaks of supporting and empowering youth — “watering seeds” — to grow community change. His poem “The Eyes of Your Enemy” challenges communities to act urgently to support their children. Learn more by reading Christian’s guest blog. Applicants will be asked to create a work of art that reflects a theme from one of Christian’s poems. Applications must be submitted by Friday, May 10, 2019. Scholarship winners will be notified by Wednesday, May 29, 2019, and will receive their award upon receipt of proof of enrollment at an eligible postsecondary institution and submission of their artwork to the local Cradle to Career Network partnership. In addition to the scholarship award, StriveTogether will cover costs to ship the selected artwork to its offices.
