About the Hamaguchi Awards
The Hamaguchi Printmaking Scholarship Awards were established to foster excellence and dedication in the study and practice of printmaking. Eligible students must be enrolled full time and reflect good academic standing at the time of application.
Additionally, students must be enrolled in a Printmaking course during one or both semesters of the current academic year.
Students are not, however, required to be Printmaking majors; the awards competition is open to all majors, provided the virtue of the character of the work submitted in print media contributes substantially to the quality of the body of work as a whole.
