Art Scholarships

All Scholarship information is found under Forms on the menu.

The Visual Arts Association of The Villages, Florida is again sponsoring an active Art Scholarship Program for Marion, Sumter and Lake County high school graduates in public, charter and private schools. To date, we have awarded over $96,000 to seniors who are going on to study the Visual Arts.

Community outreach and continuing education remain very important to us, and keep our VAA members involved and generous. We believe in ART EDUCATION as a life - long goal, and the benefits are multi-faceted at every age. Therefore, as we celebrate our 13th year for this Art Scholarship Program, we will again be offering sizeable monetary support for graduating seniors. Last year winners received $12,000.00 in awards for further art study.

We encourage 12th grade students to begin to prepare portfolios of their best art work, and consider sharing these with us in early spring. Our Packet containing Application Forms, our requirements and our deadline schedule, will be mailed to schools in late January. These documents are also available on this VAA web site. ( Please look under Forms). Applications, transcripts and CDs will be received and reviewed in March. Finalists will have (in person) interviews with us in the Villages.

If you have questions or would like additional information about our Scholarship Program please note the contact number and E Mail address provided. Check our VAA Newsletter for upcoming events, and enjoy viewing some of our most recent recipients and their award winning art that is showcased below.
