Northeast Delta Dental Scholarship Opportunity for D20s!

Northeast Delta Dental has established an endowed scholarship at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. This is open to D20s!  The successful candidate for this scholarship is required to have a strong connection to those states served by Northeast Delta Dental, which are Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine.  Additionally, the student must also have a strong academic record, have demonstrated financial need as determined by the Financial Aid Office, prioritize their CSLE selections so they may complete their externship in either Maine, New Hampshire or Vermont and commit to practicing in those three states upon graduation.  Students who intend to enroll in a GPR or AEGD in those states can still be considered for the scholarship provided they plan to practice in Maine, New Hampshire or Vermont upon completion of their program.

If, upon graduation, you intend to practice in either NH, ME or VT and currently have a strong connection to either of those states, please contact  Sandra Pearson for further information regarding this scholarship by no later than Friday, December 7, 2018.

Call for Artists! Transgender Day of Remembrance

The LGBT Center, the University Chaplaincy, and the Office of the Provost are cosponsoring the second annual Trans Day of Remembrance student art project. The project will speak to themes of trans identity, resilience, and celebration, with special attention to the experiences of trans people of color and survivors of transmisogynistic violence. Proposals may, but don’t have to, involve depictions of the trans and non-binary people lost to violence since November 2017. We hope to work collaboratively with a student artist in the Tufts and SMFA community to design the project and create the exhibit. The project may be moved to different locations on campus throughout its exhibition and will be accompanied in its various display spaces by trans-affirming resources made available by local organizations that support trans and non-binary wellness, community, and activism. The artist selected will be allotted a $500 budget for materials to create the project and receive a separate stipend of $1000. We expect to begin displaying the project in its first location on November 20th. No formal artist training is required. Trans and non-binary students are strongly encouraged to apply.

To apply, please send (1) a short (~150-200 words) account of your personal interest in being a part of the project, (2) a short proposal of your vision for the exhibit (style of portraits, manner of display, etc) including a rough breakdown of how you expect to use the $500 materials budget, and (3) three examples of portrait/depiction work that reflect the style you’d bring the project to both Hope Freeman (hope.freeman@tufts.edu) and Walker Bristol (walker.bristol@tufts.edu) with the subject line “Trans Day of Remembrance Project.” You can also e-mail Hope or Walker with any questions about the project.
