Charlie Kleiman Symposium Student Fund

The purpose of this fund is to enable a qualifying “art student” to attend
the California Sculptors Symposium (CSS) April 2019. This
scholarship will be offered annually as long as the funds endure from
pledges / donations. The “art student” does not need to be enrolled in a
formal art education program.
A CSS selection committee will receive applications starting in Sept.
2018. The deadline for submission will be February 25th , and the recipient
be notified as soon as possible. CSS Treasurer will manage this as a
distinct account / scholarship fund.

The selection criteria is based on Charlie’s value in creating sculpture in
stone. Applicants have to submit the scholarship form, images of their
sculptures, plus a letter to the CSS selection committee stating their
goals of creating sculpture in stone.  The applicant who most closely
mirrors Charlie’s goals on sculpting in stone will be awarded the
scholarship.
