Art league to grant college scholarship

Published: Thursday, Jan. 9, 2014 5:14 p.m. CDT

ELGIN – The Art For All art league in Elgin is offering a $1,000 scholarship in the digital art or digital imaging field to be used to meet college expenses.

The scholarship is in memory of Shirley Simon and is funded by the family of Shirley Simon.

All applications must be postmarked by June 1. The selection criterion, include having a “B” average or better in art-related classes; living in the greater Elgin/Fox Valley area; the applicant is planning to attend a college within a 50-mile radius of Elgin; and is demonstrating financial need.

Artists should submit samples of their portfolio – a minimum of four pieces of their artwork. The samples may be submitted as photographs, paper copies or digital files.

The scholarship recipient is required to attend an Art For All meeting, with a presentation of his or her portfolio of artwork at which time the scholarship will be awarded.

The recipients will be granted a student-affiliate membership in Art For All, and will be invited to attend Art For All meetings and activities.

The check will be made out to the school that they will attend – not the individual. The scholarship money can be used for tuition, books, fees and art supplies.

For more information, contact Vance at 630-485-9587. Applications are available at www.artforall-elgin.com.
