Scholarship Application for Youth Art Experiences.

The Northern Lakes Arts Association is proud to offer scholarships to students and families who may be facing financial challenges, ensuring that they can access our diverse array of programs. The Youth Art Fund Scholarship initiative exemplifies NLAA's unwavering commitment to making high-quality art education both accessible and affordable. Scholarships are awarded based on a combination of need and merit.


Our scholarships provide coverage for either 50% or 100% of participation fees. It's important to keep in mind that our scholarship funds are limited in quantity, and meeting the eligibility criteria does not guarantee the receipt of a scholarship award.


These scholarships are made possible through the invaluable support of NLAA's dedicated membership base and the generous contributions from our local community. We cordially invite you to join us in advocating for the arts by making a donation to our Youth Arts Fund today. Your support can truly make a profound difference in the lives of aspiring artists and their families.


We accept scholarship applications on an ongoing basis; that being said, we highly recommend applying for scholarships up to two months before the program starting to allow time for the decision-making process to occur.  Upon receiving applications, our Executive Artistic Director will compile them for consideration during our monthly board meetings, where scholarship recipients will be determined.

The application information is confidential.
