To mark its 30th anniversary of publication and in honour of its founder, Applied Arts magazine has launched the Georges Haroutiun Scholarship. Three $3,000 scholarships will be awarded in April 2016 in the areas of Advertising, Design and Image. Students must complete an assignment and submit it digitally.
"Georges has always been a champion of young talent, stressing the important role youth play in energizing the creative community," said an announcement. "Thus Applied Arts has consistently recognized, supported and celebrated the work of students, particularly through the Applied Arts Student Awards program.
"In recognition of Georges Haroutiun’s contributions to the design industry, his legacy and his mentorship of students, — whether as art director of Applied Arts, in his days teaching at OCAD University, or now, in his “retirement” consulting on the magazine’s initiatives — we are thrilled to present these new scholarships in his honour."Further info
