Congratulations to second year students Aditi Kapre and Kartik Krishnan, who have been granted a scholarship by the SVA Alumni Society for their joint thesis: “Un-Fair: Untangling India’s Obsession with Fair Skin”. The thesis— which aims to enable the creation of healthy, positive, and radically inclusive narratives surrounding skin color in India— was one of 51 projects selected by an alumni panel to receive a cash award of up to $2000 toward thesis-related expenses.
These awards are distributed annually to undergraduate and graduate students in their final year at SVA to aid in the completion of final thesis or portfolio projects. This year, the selected students will collectively receive over $60,000. We’re excited to have DSI represented in this incredibly talented lineup. Learn more about thesis funding opportunities here.
