Next Day Animations, an award-winning explainer video company, is opening the Illustrating Awesomeness Scholarship for the sixth consecutive year. Illustrating Awesomeness is a scholarship opportunity for young women or gender non-conforming individuals of color who are actively working to change the world.

Since the program launched in 2016, the Illustrating Awesomeness Scholarship has been awarded to young people pursuing degrees in fields such as Nursing, Cinema & Media Studies, and Computer and Electrical Engineering. Recipients have attended universities and colleges across the country, including the Ohio State University, Alabama A&M, and the University of Southern California.

“Since our work here at Next Day Animations is highly creative, it feels right that we are supporting the creative minds of tomorrow through our scholarship,” says Bess Zafran, Marketing Specialist. “The winners are always deeply passionate about making a difference, and learning about their goals and visions for the future is one of my favorite parts of the year.”
