Part I – Items to Submit Prior to Scholarship Competition
In the design program, our mission at George Fox University is to prepare technically competent and broadly educated designers for a life of responsible stewardship emerging from a Christian worldview.
As a student in the George Fox University design program, describe in 1200 words or less how you intend to: (1) accomplish this mission personally, and (2) provide strong, ongoing leadership to your peers in the fulfillment of this mission. (3) Use examples from your past leadership responsibilities, work or volunteer experiences, club memberships, extracurricular activities, or anything that you feel is important.
Part II – Presentation and Interview
Scholarship applicants will prepare a 3-5 minute presentation in their area of academic interest. This is an opportunity to show past projects as well as the type of work you hope to produce during your time at George Fox. Please include at least one example of work you helped create that demonstrates abilities in your area of interest. You will present before the members of the Art and Design faculty during the on-campus interview. Students may use whatever notes and visual aides necessary to give their best presentation. Appointment time is limited so please make sure your presentation honors the time limits established.
Each scholarship applicant will be asked to engage in a creative problem solving case study. A hypothetical case study will be presented and the applicant will resolve the issues presented through design solutions as well as share/expound on elements of your earlier submitted essay. We will not expect you to be an expert. The focus will be on critical thinking and decision-making skills of the scholarship applicant. We want to know how you approach the problem, what type of questions you ask, and demeanor in the process.
If you have questions regarding this scholarship, please contact Mark Terry at email@example.com.
