Norman Arts Council Now Accepting Fall 2017 Arts Education Scholarship Applications

Fall 2017 Arts Education Scholarship Application


For Fall 2017 Programs – August 1, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. CST
Note: Please read application guidelines thoroughly to ensure timely completion of all requirements!

ELIGIBILITY:  The Norman Arts Council invites students in grades K-8 who live or go to school in Norman, Oklahoma to apply for a scholarship to offset the cost of an arts education experience provided by an established arts organization or educator.

APPLICATIONS: The NAC restructured their scholarship criteria this past winter, so there is new information here. Only Applications submitted through the online process will be considered for funding. Applications must be 100% completed for consideration. "I don't know or "unsure" answers will deem an incomplete application.

SELECTION CRITERIA:  The NAC is seeking applications for scholarships from students who:

  • express a strong desire to enhance their arts education experience beyond what is offered at schools
  • demonstrate a past commitment to visual or performing arts
  • have the ability to commit to the completion of the program
  • have a financial need that prevents them from funding the tuition themselves
  • priority will be given to new applicants, low income applicants, and applicants seeking funds for visual arts programs
  • $500 is the maximum award a single student will be granted
  • Applications must be 100% completed

Applicants will not be turned down for not meeting all of the criteria. It is encouraged, however, to try to meet as many as possible and to address the criteria directly in the proposal.
