Re: 2006 Isc Outstanding Student Achievement In Contemporary Sculpture Award

(Some of you who know me may expect these comments from me).

I looked at the past student achiement award winners, and do not notice any from a unversity outside the USA.

I understand nominations are for students from a member university of the ISC, or International Sculpture Center. I am curious what proportion of these member universities are from outside N America.

Well, I may get the response that those universities outside N America do not care, nor take the initiative to join. It is always a chicken and egg situation, isn't it? Do they find good enough reasons or benefits to pay and join ?

Re: 2006 Isc Outstanding Student Achievement In Contemporary Sculpture Award

We certainly try to engage universities and colleges from around the world to join the ISC and enter the student awards competition. At present we have 350 colleges or universities as members, of which 50 members represent 18 countries other than the USA. Out of 1,533 student members 342 international students represent 33 countries. We send out information to all the students and universities encouraging them to participate in the award program. On top of that we have sent out over 1,500 invitations to schools to join the ISC and participate in this years program, about 25% of the invitations were outside the USA. The cost for a university ($170) is seriously reduced to promote inclusion, one of the main benefits is the eligibility to enter the annual competition, and another is 10 copies of each issue of the magazine, as well as reduced fees for faculty members to conferences and events. We have made postings and placed ads in an attempt to attract more international members. We will happily update you and let you know if we were able to get any new schools from abroad or if any international schools participate this year. Last year four schools outside the US joined and entered the competition, two from Canada, one from Peru and one from Korea, of which one, the school from Korea, received an honorable mention. Of the fifty international schools that could have participated only these four nominated students, remember these are schools that are already members and there is no fee to participate. We email, mail, and this week we will make some personal calls to the faculty in an attempt to get them to nominate their students. We would definitely like to see an increase in international membership and any suggestions on how we might do that would be welcomed.
