The Legion Paper Alumni Scholarship encourages artists who’ve previously participated to register for another public workshop. BIG INK draws at random and, if selected, the workshop participation fee is covered by Legion. Each scholarship recipient agrees to donate one of their woodblock prints to Legion. Two scholarships are awarded per event and recipients are featured below.
