WHAT IS THE FAILURE FAIR SCHOLARSHIP?
MCA Denver’s Failure Fair is an annual event where twelve finalists compete for $20,000 in college scholarships. Part-science fair, part TED talk, part Shark Tank, during the morning students will be stationed throughout the museum, informally sharing an individual creative project that embraces innovation and risk. In the afternoon, each of the twelve students will have five minutes to present their project to a panel of judges (made up of artists, teachers, entrepreneurs, and philanthropists). That evening one winner will take home the grand prize of a $10,000 college scholarship. Other prizes include a $5,000 and $2,500 college scholarship and up to five $500 one-time awards.

SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS
Failure Award $10,000 scholarship
Second prize $5,000 scholarship
Third prize $2,500 scholarship
Up to five additional winners will be granted one-time awards of $500 each.
The Failure Award, second, and third prizes will be distributed over four years, providing that recipients maintain full-time (minimum 12 credit hours per semester) enrollment in an accredited four-year college or university, have a 2.5 or higher cumulative grade point average, and maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress as defined by their institution.

The winner of the Failure Award will be invited to attend the Quarterly Forum Executive Breakfast in May.

MCA Denver’s Failure Fair is made possible by Pioneer Partner Quarterly Forum and by our Lead Partners in innovation: the Harvey Family Foundation and the Hemera Foundation. Scholarship awards made possible by Quarterly Forum and InSook Chon.
