Students of art are encouraged to apply now for the Palmer Scholarship awarded annually by the Toledo Museum of Art. The application deadline for the art travel award is Feb. 25, 2014.
The Palmer Scholarship provides funding for travel for an individual(s) to pursue a course of study in an art-related field. The award recipient(s) will receive up to $8,000 toward the costs of travel—including airfare, hotel and meal expenses—either domestic or abroad, to enhance their studies. Project examples include advancing creative skills, conducting research and studying educational techniques.
Applicants must reside in northwest Ohio. The award recipient(s) must complete the travel within one year of notification. Awards will be announced in March. Details and an application form can be downloaded at www.toledomuseum.org/learn/scholarships.
Questions can be directed to Mike Deetsch at firstname.lastname@example.org or 419-255-8000 ext. 7292.
The Palmer Scholarship is one of many awarded by the Museum. Scholarships for TMA art classes for children and adults are intended to provide art education to those who might not otherwise be able to participate and to encourage artistically gifted individuals.
