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 100% 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.
