This is the century for creators.
In today’s world, nearly anyone can become a creator, whether that’s a musician, streamer, YouTuber, photographer, digital artist, or more.
But with increased access has come increased competition in the creator economy. And all creators face a common struggle – to make a living with your art, you need exposure. Exposure is what allows you to convert your expertise into real dollars. However, until you reach that point of conversion, exposure simply does not pay the bills.
As one small part of supporting the creator economy, The KUURO Master Your Craft Scholarship exists to give creators the peace of mind they need to pursue their art and to nudge them to keep mastering the craft with a little less anxiety about figuring out how to pay the bills.
The scholarship is open to students of any artistic study, including but not limited to music, art (digital or print), film/tv, video, photography, and more. To apply, please write about some of your current projects, why you do what you do, and your creative ambitions for the future.

Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution or future academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
