Five Years of Illustrating Awesomeness!

Partnership is one of our core values, and there’s nothing we love more than partnering in pursuit of positive impact. Each year, Next Day Animations awards a scholarship to several young women or gender non-conforming individuals of color who are actively working to change the world.

For the fifth year in a row, our Illustrating Awesomeness Scholarship is open once again!

Four students will receive the award in 2022 to support their visions for the spring semester. Caitlin Rogers, Next Day Animations co-founder, shares a bit about what inspired the team to start the scholarship in the first place:

“As a values-based business, we care deeply about our impact, and we see the scholarship as a small way to recognize and support young people who are already changing the world for the better.

We started off with just two scholarships annually. As our business has grown, It’s been great to be able to increase the number of recipients over the years, since choosing between so many amazing applicants is no easy task.”

If you know young women or gender non-conforming individuals of color who are currently enrolled or who will begin college/university in the spring semester of 2022, be sure to invite them to apply. The application can be found here, on our website, at
