Eligibility and deadlines

Applicants must submit a proposal to be considered for an ambassadorship. Successful applicants are SCAD alumni with artistic and creative expertise who demonstrate the ability to serve as ambassadors for their alma mater and produce work that is significant in its field.

Eligibility

The ambassadorship is open to SCAD alumni pursuing creative practice. SCAD Alumni Atelier ambassadors in Atlanta focus on the literary arts, and ambassadors in Lacoste produce and create in disciplines that include drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, graphic design and more. Applicants must have an undergraduate or graduate degree from SCAD and must be at least 21 years of age at the time of application. Demonstrated excellence in a creative practice is paramount.

Alumni are not eligible to apply if they are current SCAD students, faculty, staff, board or council members.

Alumni who have a relationship with any current or former faculty, staff, board or council members must state that relationship. These individuals cannot be used as references, nor will they be permitted to serve on the selection committee.

SCAD Alumni Atelier ambassadors cannot reapply for a period of three years after their ambassadorship.
