    Arts Scholarships for Teens

    Education from an arts college or university can be indispensable to a student’s career. The ability to work on projects with like minded peers and the opportunity to connect with established figures in the art world are just a few of the benefits that can come with attending an arts college like the ones listed in our guides

    However, like with all disciplines, the cost of higher education in the arts is only growing more expensive. That’s why we’ve put together this list of arts scholarships for teens. 

    Some of the scholarships listed here have deadlines quickly approaching or require specific prerequisites for application, so be sure to read the terms of the scholarship fully before applying.

    We also encourage you to seek out opportunities closer to home, as many local communities have arts scholarships available for students from their area. Additionally, if you’ve already applied to a college or university, be sure to inquire about whether or not they have any art-specific scholarships available. 

    Take a look and start applying today! Scholarships with the earliest deadlines are listed first.
