Art Scholarship Fund

The Art Scholarship was established by an anonymous donor in Isabella County to support local graduating seniors pursuing a degree in Art or Art History. The scholarship aims to reward local students who have displayed a love and passion for art in the past and who plan to follow that passion as a career path after high school.

Students planning to major in drawing, ceramics, painting, graphic design, photography, printmaking, sculpture, typography, weaving/fiber design, art history or art education (art instructor) are all applicable for this scholarship, as art, of course, takes many different shapes and forms.
