    In followup to the recent successful Ezhishin conference, the first-ever panel and workshop event dedicated to Native North American typography, the Type Directors Club and Google have announced the creation of the first Ezhishin Scholarship program.

    The annual 5,000 USD scholarship, funded by Google, is for Native American and First Nation individuals in the US and Canada, respectively, who exemplify a creative practice that explores typography, type design, or relevant linguistic work.

    Applicants should be enrolled in a Federally or State recognized Tribe in the US or hold "Indian Status" under the Indian Act in Canada, and can include current students or those that want to supplement their education via post-grad programs or applicable workshops.

    The Ezhishin Scholarship program will be coordinated by Leo Vicenti, associate professor of Communications Design at Emily Carr University of Art & Design in Vancouver, and Ksenya Samarskaya, TDC managing director.

    Applications will be accepted starting in February 2023.
