    The Center for Craft, Creativity and Design is pleased to announce the ten 2010 Windgate Fellows, selected from 92 applications representing 50 universities from throughout the United States.  Each Windgate Fellow, a graduating senior whose work relates to craft, will receive $15,000 to complete a proposal presented in his/her application.  This is the fourth year of the Windgate Fellowship awards, a program supported by the Windgate Charitable Trust and administered by the Center for Craft, Creativity and Design.

    In the fall of 2009, universities with a strong craft program were invited to each nominate two graduating seniors for this prestigious fellowship.  The students then completed an online application, with images of their work and an outline of an 18 month proposal that would propel their career forward after they complete their undergraduate degree.  A panel reviewed the applications and met in late March to review finalists and select the ten fellows.   

    The selection panel has made their selection of the 10 applicants to receive 2010 Windgate Fellowships of $15,000 each.  The quality of applications was the highest to date so the process was difficult.  The 2010 selection panel included: Jan Katz, Curator, Center for Southern Craft and Design, The Ogden Museum of Southern Art, New Orleans; Harriet Green,Visual Arts Director, South Carolina Arts Commission; Miguel Gómez-Ibáñez, Executive Director, North Bennet Street School, Boston; and Stoney Lamar, wood/metal sculptor and Windgate Foundation representative, Saluda, NC.  Panel members scored each application on line then met March 26 to select the ten 2010 winners from finalists.
