The Society of Illustrators proudly presents the Zankel Scholar named in memory of Arthur Zankel, whose generous bequest has made this scholarship possible. Mr. Zankel was a firm advocate for higher education. This is the 9th year the Society has been honored to seek, in his name, the best of the junior class and to financially support his or her senior year of college.



Thank you to this year's judges Matt Dorfman, (Art Director, The New York Times), Illustrators Donato Giancola, John Nickel, and Julia Rothman, and Amy Hausmann (MTA Arts & Design, Deputy Director), as well as Zankel Scholar Chair Melanie Reim.  The winner of the Zankel Scholar will be announced on June 4th.


Congratulations to this year's Zankel Scholar Finalists!
