The Toledo Museum of Art is now accepting applications for the Palmer Scholarship, which funds art-related travel for northwest Ohio residents.
Previous scholarship recipients have used the award to photograph landscapes in Iran, learn textile-making in Scotland and study indigenous artifacts in New Zealand.
The Museum is inviting artists, photographers, students and others pursuing an artistic endeavor away from home to apply for up to $8,000 in funding. While the scholarship covers airfare, meals, and hotel or housing, it does not provide for related tuition, class fees or study materials.
The application deadline for the annual art travel award is March 3, 2017. Appropriate project proposals include the advancement of creative skills, conducting research or studying educational techniques.
Applicants must currently reside in northwest Ohio. The award recipient(s) must complete the travel within one year of notification. Awards will be announced in April. Details and an application form can be downloaded at toledomuseum.org/learn/scholarships.
Questions about how to apply for the Palmer Scholarship can be directed to Sara Daniels at firstname.lastname@example.org or 419-255-8000 ext. 7363. 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.
