Scholarship Program Mission: The Norman Arts Council Arts Education Scholarships are intended to provide Norman children with the opportunity to attend arts programming that is offered outside of schools.
For FALL 2019 Programs – Monday, August 26, 2019 @ 11:59pm 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 has recently restructured their scholarship criteria, so there is new information. Only Applications submitted through the on-line 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.
