The Scholastic Art and Writing Awards offer a variety of scholarships for students between the ages of 13 -18. One of their scholarships, The Portfolio Awards, offers $10,000 scholarships to 16 Gold Medal Portfolio recipients and $1,000 scholarships to 30 Silver Medal with Distinction Portfolio recipients.
All graduating seniors submitting a collection of six works with accompanying artist and personal statements (500 words or less) are eligible. When applying, students should select “Art Portfolio” or “Writing Portfolio” as their category. They will be prompted to include an artist statement and personal statement on their work.
Seniors may submit up to two Art Portfolios, but may not submit the same work in both portfolios.
