The Uncommon Goods is all set to receive applications for its scholarship program conducted for spring 2021. The scholarship awards are made available for every domestic, international, and undocumented student who is studying at an accredited school with an interest in arts. Undergraduate and graduate students who can display their unique use of creativity, art, or design may apply. Students must demonstrate financial aids to be acceptable for the scholarship program.
The Uncommon Goods committee believes that no student should fail to achieve their goals or higher education because of the financial crises, so they found a creative way to give funds to them for their studies. The artist designing the best innovative ideas and artwork will be handed over a decent amount for their further education.
The Uncommon Goods was founded in 1999 and located in Brooklyn, NY. It offers remarkable designs by independent makers, and they do it with a positive impact on both people and our planet.
