APS awards a 2-year $1,000 Scholarship to a graduating senior that will be attending College or University in the Fall each year. All entrants must email the form and four digital photos to the Scholarship Chairperson.
Entrants must be sponsored by an APS paid member.
The student must:
- major or minor in an art program for the two consecutive years
- submit, by email, 4 digital photos representative of their work by 12 midnight, June 30
- 72 dpi jpegs labeled as: Last Name_Title of Entry_Size _Medium.jpg

The student will also have to fill out a short questionnaire and send it to the APS Scholarship Chair.
