Creative Promise

Just got wind of this. I thought I’d pass it along for anyone who might be a foreign born artist or scientist. You can download an application at http://www.vilcek.org.

From the Vilcek site:

The Vilcek Prize for Creative Promise recognizes talented foreign-born artists and scientists who have demonstrated significant creativity and originality in the early stages of their careers.  Two $25,000 prizes, one in the field of biomedical research and one in a category of the arts or humanities selected by the Foundation, are awarded each year.
   
The cash award and a certificate of recognition created by designer Stefan Sagmeister will be presented to each winner of the Vilcek Prize for Creative Promise during the Foundation’s annual awards dinner in New York City.
   
The Vilcek Prize for Creative Promise was established to provide continued encouragement and support towards the artistic and scientific pursuits of young immigrants who often face significant challenges in their early careers, and to increase awareness of the emerging talent of foreign-born scholars and artists in the United States.
   
Application Deadline for the 2009 Vilcek Prize for Creative Promise is July 11, 2008. Please email creativepromise@vilcek.org for additional information.
