TMA scholarships are intended to provide an understanding and appreciation of the arts to a wide demographic range who might not otherwise be financially able to attend Museum classes, and to recognize and encourage artistically gifted students. The Museum offers two types of scholarships:
Scholarship Application form: Scholarships, awarded based on financial need, cover 50% of the tuition fee for most classes.
Palmer Scholarship: This scholarship provides funding for travel to pursue a course of study in an art-related field. The award recipient(s) receives up to $8,000 toward the costs of travel , either domestic or abroad, to enhance his/her studies in an art-related endeavor.
Applications for the 2013 Palmer Scholarship are being accepted through February 25. Award(s) will be made in late March.
Recipients of last year’s Palmer Scholarship are:
|Jennifer Fechik||Research on 6th-5th century B.C. symposium pottery from Attica.|
|Kathy Heisinger||Photograph the educational process for life skills as well as AIDS.|
|Ryan Davis||Study art and culture. Paint murals with local residents.|
