Past Presidents' Pre-Service Scholarship


The NYSATA Past President’s Scholarship Award is intended to encourage leadership and foster dedication to the field of art education. This $500 cash award is awarded annually to a deserving pre-service student enrolled in an accredited visual art education program (from both private and public educational institutions) in New York State. Candidates for this award must meet specific criteria that include recommendation by an art education program faculty member, maintaining a GPA of 3.5 or higher, excellence as an artist, and must be scheduled to student teach within a year of the award.

This scholarship was made possible by the generous support of many past presidents. These founding members are all past presidents of NYSATA.  For a complete list of donors please see the NYSATA website. Proposed by Patricia Groves (Past President: 2007-2009) and turned into a self sustaining endowment fund with a generous donation by Ernest Savaglio (Past President:   ) this award will be the first scholarship given to go to an art education pre-service student. The NYSATA Past President’s Scholarship Award will serve as a legacy to all of these dedicated individuals who gave so much of themselves to NYSATA and to the field of art education.
