Clare Wedding Student Enrichment Scholarship

*DUE May 6, 2019*
 
Through the generosity of Randy and Celia Wedding, The Clare Wedding Student Enrichment Endowment provides support for students in the History of Art and Visual Culture (HAVC) Department.  The fund is administered by the department chair and may be used for a variety of purposes that benefit undergraduates related to two primary themes: 
  • The study of art of the Pacific Rim countries and communities, including Oceania (the Pacific Islands).  In the Western Hemisphere, this pertains to art focused on the West Coast.
    • This includes all Pacific Rim countries and Oceania (i.e., Asian countries bordering the Pacific Ocean, Australia, the Pacific Islands, Canada, the U.S., and Latin American countries bordering the Pacific Ocean).  
    • The scholarship also supports proposals related to Pacific Rim and Oceanic disaporic art and visual culture (e.g., art related to diasporic Hmong communities in Minnesota, or art related to diasporic Micronesian communities in Arkansas).
  • The support of students pursuing practical experiences in the curation and display of art and visual culture. 
    • Scholarship funds could also be used to support students pursuing historical and/or theoretical training in curatorial, museum, and/or heritage studies at UCSC (e.g., a UCSC summer session course). This type of study would inform practical applications. 
Appropriate uses of this scholarship include:
  • Provide students with internships at accredited museums, including supplementing resources for students who have secured their own internships (e.g., assist with housing and travel expenses)
  • Provide funds for courses that offer students practical curatorial or exhibition experience (e.g., instructional or materials funds)
  • Provide funds for students to pursue independent research projects (e.g., assist with travel and research expenses)
