Student Scholarships


NYSATA awards four one-time scholarships annually to seniors who plan to pursue post-secondary education in the arts. Scholarships are open to graduating seniors planning to attend a College Art Program of study. Scholarship applicants must be students of current NYSATA member teachers.

STUDENTS will need complete each item below. Place all of your materials in a folder that you can share through a Google Drive or Drop Box account. If your Google account is a school-provided account, be sure to select link sharing options that enable you to share with people outside your organization. When all your materials are complete, e-mail your teacher the link to your shared digital folder.

TEACHERS must submit the student application online using the link to the right by the June 30, 2020 deadline. Current membership is required. You will need your NYSATA member username and password to log in to the submission form.
