Art Class Scholarship Application

We recognize that family financial circumstances may sometimes limit the accessibility of art camp programs for some children and we want to ensure that our classes and camps are open to as many young artists as possible. For this reason, the Trout Museum of Art has established a scholarship fund for our classes and camps.

Scholarship funding is used to decrease the financial burden of sending a child to participate in one of our classes for those families that would otherwise not be able to afford the cost of participation. Applications are received and reviewed on a rolling basis throughout the year with a request that the application and letter of referral be submitted no later than 5 business days prior to the beginning of the earliest requested class time.

If you have any questions about the application, the scholarship program, or the camp options, please email Marci Hoffman.
