If you have a high school student of any age who is serious about their art, have them check out The Jeffrey Ahn, Jr. Fellowship for Young Artists.
It is awarded annually to a high school age artist of any background who proposes to complete an independent creative project during their summer break. The fellowship will provide up to $10,000 of funding for the project, including but not limited to cost of materials, relevant museum or gallery admission, and/or tuition for creative instruction.
The Fellowship honors the creativity and independence of Jeffrey Ahn, Jr. (1995-2012) while supporting young artists as they strengthen their skills and talent.
The deadline is February 29, 2016.
