Karen Anne Summerfield Special Assignment At Work

To make a Swarthmore education available to qualified students, the College designated in excess of $42 million for Swarthmore scholarships for the coming year. About 53% of our student body receives scholarship assistance through Swarthmore on the basis of their families' financial situations. To meet the needs of our students, the average aid award for 2016-17 was $48,720. A total of 70 percent of our students will share more than $46 million in scholarships, loans, and campus job opportunities during the 2017-2018 academic year.

Although admission and financial aid decisions are made separately, they are made at the same time. A prospective student should apply for Swarthmore aid and outside assistance when applying for admission to Swarthmore. Instructions for completing a financial aid application can be found at www.swarthmore.edu/financialaid. Financial assistance will be offered if a family does not have the capacity to meet college costs without our help. The amount a family is expected to contribute is determined by weighing the family's income and assets against such demands as taxes, living expenses, medical expenses, siblings' undergraduate tuition expenses, and so forth. Family contributions also include a $2,000 to $2,500 summer earnings contribution from students, as well as a portion of the student's assets.

For 2017-2018, the College charges, which include tuition, room, board, and a student activity fee, will be $65,774. This activity fee covers admission to all social, cultural, and athletic events on campus. The total budget figure against which aid is computed is $68,426. This allows for an estimated $1,336 for books and supplies and $1,316 for personal expenses. A transportation allowance is added to the budget for those who live in the United States but more than 100 miles from the College. It is this larger total that we use when determining a student's need for our help. Although our financial aid awards are loan-free, students and parents remain welcome to borrow to help pay the family's share of Swarthmore expenses (see section 5.2).

In keeping with our policy of basing financial aid on demonstrated need, the College reviews each student's family financial situation annually. Students who would like to be considered for our support for the next year must submit a new financial aid application each spring. Financial Aid eligibility may change from year-to-year. Assistance is available only during a normal-length undergraduate program (eight semesters) and only if a student enrolls full-time each semester, earns four credits each semester, and makes satisfactory academic progress. These factors also apply in our consideration of a sibling's undergraduate educational expenses. Students who choose to live off campus will not receive Swarthmore Scholarship or Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants in excess of their college bills. However, the cost of living off campus will be recognized in the calculation of a student's financial need, and other outside sources of aid may be used to help meet off-campus living expenses once the college bill is satisfied.

Although eligibility for federal aid funds is limited to those who are able to complete and to submit the Statement of Registration Compliance, additional funds have been made available for those who are unable to accept need-based federal aid because they have not registered with the U.S. Selective Service. U.S. citizens and permanent residents who have not previously received financial aid may become eligible and may apply to receive aid if their financial situations have changed. A student who marries may continue to apply for aid, though parents are still expected to contribute to the student's education. Financial support for foreign national students is limited and must be requested during the admission application process. New aid applications from foreign nationals cannot be considered after admission.

Answers to most financial aid questions are available at www.swarthmore.edu/financialaid.

5.1 Scholarships

For the academic year 2017-2018, the College will award more than $42 million in Swarthmore Scholarship funds. About one-half of that sum will be provided through the generosity of alumni and friends by special gifts and the scholarships listed in section 5.4. Students do not apply for a specific College scholarship. Rather, the College decides who is to receive restricted endowed scholarships or support from general scholarship funds. Although the qualifying criteria for awarding most endowed scholarships remain general, some donors have established explicit guidelines that closely mirror the interests of the individual for whom the scholarship is named. Financial need, however, is a requirement for all College scholarships except the McCabe Scholarship. Federal Pell Grants and Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants are also available to eligible students.

5.2 Loan Funds

Although our aid awards are loan-free, students may choose to borrow instead of working or to help ease the family's burden. First-year students may borrow up to $5,500; sophomores may borrow $6,500, and juniors and seniors may borrow up to $7,500. The federal Direct Stafford Loan is a long-term, low-interest educational loan. Eligibility for a federal Direct Stafford Loan is determined by the College, using federal guidelines. Parents who wish to borrow might consider the federal Direct PLUS Loan. Up to $68,426 per year and repayment may be made over a 10-year period. Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the Direct Stafford or Direct PLUS loans. For more information about these loan programs or other financing options, go to our website at www.swarthmore.edu/financialaid.

5.3 Student Employment

Student employment on the Swarthmore campus is coordinated by the Student Employment Office, which is under student direction. Campus jobs are available in such areas as our libraries, Information Technology Services, the student-run coffeehouse, most academic and administrative offices, and many other places on campus. Our students manage, give tours, tutor, write, coordinate, and provide support throughout the campus. Students apply for campus positions when they arrive in the fall. On-campus hourly rates of pay run from $9.50 to $10.19. Students receiving financial aid are usually offered the opportunity to earn up to $2,040 during the academic year, and are given hiring priority, but there are many jobs available for non-aided students who wish to work on campus. Students are encouraged to keep a moderate work schedule-no more than about 7 or 8 hours weekly-so that academic performance is not compromised. About 1,200 of our 1,620 students choose to work.

5.4 Scholarship Funds

All students who demonstrate financial need are offered scholarship aid, some of which is drawn from the following named funds. However, students should not worry if they do not fit the specific restrictions listed because their scholarships will instead be drawn from other sources not listed here.

All Shook Up: Text & Image in Flag Books 
Karen Hanmer

July 7 
Thursday, 9:00–5:00
Book Arts Studio, J. Willard Marriott Library, Level 4 

The foundation of Hedi Kyle's deceptively small and simple book flag book structure is an accordion folded spine. Flaps attached to both sides of each of the spine's mountain folds allow the artist to fragment and layer a number of complementary or contrasting images and narratives. When the flag book spine is pulled fully open, the fragmented images on the flaps come together to create a large, panoramic image. Participants experiment with complementary and contrasting text and images and discuss the effects of different spine and page dimensions, direction of motion, and which images are most successful. Students learn a tidy, non-adhesive method of covering boards and use a jig to facilitate quicker, more precise assembly. While this is not a computer class, digital printing and setting up Photoshop templates for pages, covers and spines is demonstrated.

Streamlined Style for Contemporary Leather Bindings 
Karen Hanmer

July 8 & 9
Friday & Saturday, 10:00–6:00 
Book Arts Studio, J. Willard Marriott Library, Level 4

Learn a variety of decorative techniques for use on leather bindings. These techniques require minimal equipment and modest leatherworking skill, and some can also be applied to cloth or paper. Demonstrated methods include: backpared onlays, inlaid lines, stamping texture into leather, feathered onlays, Lacunose (abstract sanded leather collage), craquele, various inlay techniques, laminating a paper illustration for use as an inlay, various methods of creating sculptural boards, transfer of computer-printed onlay shapes from paper to leather, and laser printing on leather. Students' completed set of four goatskin plaquettes together with a detailed handout are valuable reference for future projects. See examples of the techniques covered in this workshop here. Note: This is not an entry-level leather-working course. Students should have some experience with edge-paring and forming leather corners.

The Practice of Ukiyo-e Woodblock
Keiji Shinohara

August 5-6
Friday & Saturday, 10:00-6:00
Book Arts Studio, J. Willard Marriott Library, Level 4

Leave the brayers, pallet knives, rag papers, and presses behind, and journey eastward. With brushes and barrens, master printmaker Shinohara guides participants gently through the traditional Ukiyo-e technique of woodblock printing on Japanese papers. As new practitioners, participants have time to carve small, simple blocks using one or two colors. The focus of the workshop is on observance and practice of process rather than on a producing a masterful print.

- - - - -
Keiji Shinohara was born and raised in Osaka, Japan. After 10 years as an apprentice to the renowned Keiichiro Uesugi in Kyoto, he became a Master Printmaker and moved to the United States. Shinohara's nature-based abstractions are printed on handmade kozo paper using water-based pigment onto woodblocks in the ukiyo-e style–the traditional Japanese printmaking method dating to 600 CE. Though Shinohara employs ancient methods in creating his woodblock prints, he also diverges from tradition by experimenting with ink application and different materials to add texture to his prints. He is currently teaching printmaking at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut and has been a visiting artist at over 100 venues and 30 solo shows. He has received grants from the Japan Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts and his work is in many public collections, including the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Fogg Art Museum at Harvard University, Milwaukee Art Museum, and the Library of Congress.
