Scholarship Program & Requirements

The Student Arts Foundation provides scholarships to students who are planning to enroll or are currently enrolled in an undergraduate program devoted to fine or commercial arts, design or music.

With the cost of a college education steadily rising, it can be difficult for art students to realize their creative potential and create a platform for a professional career. That is why the Student Arts Foundation believes an applicable scholarship can make all the difference to aspiring artists who dream of pursuing an art degree. We will be providing scholarships for the Fall Semester of 2017. Applications will be due June 1, 2017. Please review the qualifications below, and feel free to Contact Us with any questions or concerns. Thank you and Good Luck!

Scholarships are very competitive, and will be rewarded only to those students that display the best written, and artistic work combination. Currently, scholarships will be granted each year in amounts of up to $5,000 per applying student. Students, who are awarded scholarship funds from the Student Arts Foundation, are not eligible to reapply for future funding.

Good Luck!
