Apply for MIVAL art scholarship

MIVAL is seeking applicants for its 2018 Senior Student Scholarship. Each year, MIVAL awards at least three scholarships — with a total amount of $2,100 — to seniors in high school. The program is meant to encourage and support emerging, committed, deserving high school visual artists in their desire to continue their art education after high school.

Any 12th grade high school student residing or attending school on Mercer Island who plans to enter a college, university, community college or art institution with the intention of pursuing an art major or continuing the visual arts field may apply. The deadline is April 23.
