Sausalito Art Festival calls for scholarship applications
Submitted By Cheryl Popp
For the 12th year, the Sausalito Art Festival Foundation (SAFF) will be granting art scholarships to Bay Area students. A total of $20,000 in scholarship funding will be awarded to a minimum of four students - graduating high school seniors and students currently enrolled in college.
In addition to the supporting documents required (transcripts, proof of enrollment, etc.) candidates will be asked to submit two written essays, including one on how art has affected my life. Ann Arnott, SAFF board member who chairs the scholarship committee, said, "We're looking for students with financial need, but also those who are inspired by art and have a vision of what it can do for others."
For applications, eligibility requirements and other details go to www.sausalitoartfestival.org, call (415) 331-3555, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications are due June 15 and will be evaluated by the SAFF Scholarship Committee. Winners will be notified July 1.
The SAFF Scholarship Program supports the mission of the Sausalito Art Festival Foundation which is to encourage, promote, and support the arts within the community. Funding for the scholarships is provided by proceeds from the Art Festival Gala, which is scheduled for August 30 this year. Over $150,000 in scholarships has been gifted in the past 12 years and numerous recipients have gone on to have successful careers in art thanks to this valuable educational support.
