Sub Pop Hands Out Loser Scholarship
- Words: Fred Miketa
Sub Pop, the label responsible for releasing classics from the likes of Earth, Modest Mouse, and The Postal Service is offering one Washington or Oregon high-school senior a chance at their first ever “Loser Scholarship.”
Said lucky senior will receive $5750 to apply toward college tuition. Naturally, the label is looking for the artistic-minded kids of the world, and those with enough self-awareness to understand why they’d prefer to spend their days in an indie-rock band (or doing some other form of art).
Students have until May 1 to prove their creative ambition. Applicants simply need to send over a hard- or digital copy of their portfolios, write a one-page essay, and pray for some fiscal indie-love.
