Advancing Women In Type Design

Founded and funded by global type foundry Sharp Type, The Malee Scholarship provides female-identifying designers of color with financial help and mentorship to pursue a career in type design. Named after the co-founder of Sharp Type, Chantra Malee Montoya-Pimolwatana, the scholarship exists to advance and empower women who are part of the underrepresented racial and ethnic groups in the type design field. The Malee Scholarship grants $6,000 annually to one woman of color over 16 years of age, and also includes an optional four-week mentorship program with Sharp Type staff, who will provide professional guidance toward the production of the recipient’s typeface. The deadline: May 5. See here for application info.
