The Brand Ambassador Scholarship is awarded multiple times a year by partnering with popular cosmetic brands. The scholarship amount varies and is awarded based on artistic talent, social engagement, character, and a personal statement.
When it was conceived, The Legends of Creature Design Scholarship was given in partnership with legendary, 7-time Oscar-winning makeup and effects artist, Rick Baker, who personally selected winners to receive a ten thousand dollar scholarship in tuition credit. We’ve since had the pleasure of having Howard Berger and Greg Nicotero of KNB EFX Group helm the scholarship. This year, the torch has been passed to the Academy Award winning creature fx and makeup design studio of Alec Gillis and Tom Woodruff, Jr., Amalgamated Dynamics, Inc !
The Next Level of Cosplay Scholarship is an annual scholarship contest judged by award winning Hollywood makeup artists and cosplay specialists that awards a full ride scholarship for the Master Makeup Program to entrants from the cosplay community and beyond with demonstrated talent and an interest in becoming professional makeup artists.
