From photography in Thailand to Egyptian coffins at the University of Pennsylvania, the Toledo Museum of Art’s Palmer Scholarship has helped area art students explore their interests more deeply.
Now, the Museum is inviting the next generation of artists, photographers and others pursuing an art-related education to apply for the $8,000 award, which covers the cost of travels to enhance their studies.
The application deadline for the annual art travel award is Feb. 25, 2014. The award can be used towards airfare, hotel and food expenses either domestically or abroad. 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 toledomuseum.org/learn/classes by clicking on the scholarships link.
Questions can be directed to Mike Deetsch, assistant director of education/classes, 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.
