Grants with a $600 value to Minnesota high school students in eligible counties for a summer art study program in a range of disciplines.

Students, grades 9-11, must reside in the nine-county region served by LRAC that includes Becker, Clay, Douglas, Grant, Otter Tail, Pope, Stevens,Traverse, and Wilkin.

Scholarships are awarded based on commitment, potential for artistic development and equitable access. Previous formal arts training is not required.
Students will have an opportunity to present at an Artist Mentorship Program Showcase in October 2020.
