Gerard Unger Scholarship 2019

November 2018

We are very pleased to announce the 5th edition of TypeTogether’s Typeface Publishing Incentive Programme, now renamed Gerard Unger Scholarship, open to any student enrolled in a postgraduate course in typeface design during the 2017–2018 or 2018–2019 academic years.

 
 

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 fifth 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), and Lanka (designed by Bogidar Mascareñas, a work in progress).

In 2018 we took a gap year to be able to offer a better service to the ongoing projects and newcomers. Therefore, in addition to current students, those from the previous academic year are welcome to apply. We are looking forward to receive all the new submissions that will surprise and amaze us!

You can find out more information about eligibility, how to apply, and key dates here — additional information is also available at incentive[at]type-together.com.
