Gerard Unger Scholarship 2021

March 2021

We are very pleased to announce the seventh edition of TypeTogether’s Gerard Unger Scholarship, open to any current or graduated student who has developed a typeface in a type design course within the past two years (2019–2021).


The winning student will be given guidance and support in developing their career after graduation through critique, expert feedback, economic support, and a publishing contract with TypeTogether. This is our seventh instalment, following Bely (designed by Roxane Gataud, published in 2016, awarded with a TDC award), Noort (designed by Juan Bruce, released in 2017, awarded with a TDC award), Temeraire (designed by Quentin Schmerber, published in 2018), Laima (designed by Bogidar Mascareñas, released in 2019, awarded with a TDC award) Lektorat (designed by Florian Fecher, released in 2020) and Rezak (designed by Anya Danilova, currently in the design phase).
