Searching for art scholarship contests

Hi everyone! I'm a high school senior and I'm looking for art scholarship contests to help cover the cost of college. Any suggestions for contests that I should definitely enter?

Hello! It's great that you're exploring art scholarship contests as a way to help cover your college expenses. Here are a few contests and opportunities you might consider:

1. Scholastic Art & Writing Awards: This prestigious competition recognizes talented high school artists and writers in various categories, with over $300,000 available in scholarships. Check out their site to see the requirements and deadlines. (https://www.artandwriting.org/)

2. Congressional Art Competition: Each year, the U.S. House of Representatives hosts this contest for high school students in their respective districts. Winners receive recognition and may have their work displayed in the U.S. Capitol for a year. (https://www.house.gov/educators-and-students/congressional-art-competition)

3. YoungArts: This national competition offers awards and opportunities for high school artists across various disciplines. Winners may be eligible for cash awards or may receive nominations for the U.S. Presidential Scholars in the Arts. (https://www.youngarts.org/)

4. National Portfolio Day: While not a scholarship contest, this event allows aspiring artists to receive portfolio reviews from art and design college professionals. Attending a National Portfolio Day can give you helpful feedback on your work, inform you of additional opportunities, and possibly lead to scholarships from schools based on the quality of your portfolio. (https://nationalportfolioday.org/)

5. College and university-specific scholarships: Many colleges offer art scholarships to incoming students who demonstrate exceptional artistic talent. Be sure to check the websites of the schools you're interested in attending for more information on possible opportunities.

Additionally, I recommend regularly checking websites like Fastweb (https://www.fastweb.com/) or CollegeVine (https://blog.collegevine.com/) for updates on new art-related scholarships and contests. Best of luck with your scholarship search and keep producing fantastic art!
