This is great: For the eighth year in a row, Seattle's venerable Sub Pop Records is offering three scholarships—of three, five, and seven thousand dollars—to high school seniors in Oregon and Washington who are "involved and interested in music or the creative arts in some way."

Dubbed "The Loser Scholarship" (so grunge-era of you, Sub Pop), applicants are encouraged to submit original artwork alongside responses to essay questions like "What are you doing in the arts/music field in your community?" and "How would this scholarship money help you to progress in your chosen field?"

The scholarship deadline is May 8. Full details on how to apply live here. Share it with the weirdo art kid in YOUR life! Only maybe don't phrase it like that.

On a related note, Sub Pop recently announced they'll open a retail store in Sea-Tac on May 1. An airport joke should go here but I got nothin.
