A St. Andrews junior majoring in Art, Rina Suzuki (Shizukuishi, Japan), has been chosen as a semi-finalist for the Nikon Storytellers Scholarship.
The contest was open to undergraduate and graduate students at an accredited, non-profit college/university or vocational/technical school in the United States or Canada pursuing degrees in visual arts, fine arts, journalism, film, photography and multimedia/content creation who will have completed their freshman year of college or academic equivalent before Fall 2018. Ten winners will each receive a $10,000 academic scholarship as they continue to pursue their creative field of study to be used in the 2018-2019 academic school year.
Ms. Suzuki is a junior with particular interests in psychology and gender studies. Her artwork (as shown) focuses on realism and a detailed texture of life to share perspectives and feelings with viewers. Her art professor at St. Andrews is Stephanie McDavid.
The final scholarship recipients will be notified in June.
