Scholarship Program for High School Senior Students of Visual Arts

Through our annual Scholarship Program, MIVAL encourages and supports emerging, committed and deserving high school senior visual artists in their desire to continue their art education. Any twelfth-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 in the visual arts field, may apply for MIVAL’s Senior Student Scholarship.

In 2017, we will award at least three scholarships. The total amount of all 2017 scholarships will be at least $2,100. For questions, contact Carol, wcarol11@comcast.net. 

The Scholarship Program application deadline is April 24, 2017, postmarked or emailed. Mail submissions should be sent to MIVAL Scholarships, P. O. Box 134, Mercer Island, WA 98040. Email submissions should be sent to wcarol11@comcast.net. Applicants who send an application by regular (U.S.) mail, should also notify MIVAL of this by contacting Carol Whitaker by email or phone (206) 280-8509.
