Art Scholarships and Internships

Find art scholarships to fuel your passion!

Elizabeth Hoyt

June 17, 2015

When students are work hard to develop passions, both inside and outside of the classroom, organizations take notice. That’s why not all scholarships are based on academic performance. Alternatively, many seek to reward a student’s unique talent — whether it’s athletic, mechanical, art-based, etc.

To help connect creative students with increasing scholarship opportunities, the Fastweb database contains an array of art scholarships and internship opportunities.

Whether your talent is something you hope to turn into a career or is an extracurricular passion that keeps you occupied outside of the classroom, there are art scholarships that you may qualify for.

With the help of art scholarships, fellowships and internships, you can further your passion, create a career path and inspire other aspiring artists like yourself.

Below is a mere sampling of some of the more general art scholarships that exist within the Fastweb database — filling out your profile may match you to single art scholarships at your school of choice.

To help better organize your scholarship search, please note that the following art awards and internship opportunities are listed according to deadline, with the earliest deadline appearing at the top of the page. Deadlines that vary will appear at the bottom of the list.
