Scholarship Opportunities

The Student Arts Foundation provides access to scholarships for 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 pathway for a professional career. That is why the Student Arts Foundation believes a scholarship can make all the difference to aspiring artists who dream of pursuing a art centered degree.

 

Below are partner scholarships and the associated application details. We invite you to apply and take advantage of these very unique opportunities.

 

Thank you and Good Luck!
