We have organized this scholarship fund to give two high school graduates the opportunity to receive full financial aid to attend Princeton Academy of Art for the 2020-2021 Academic year. This fund will also cover the cost of all supply fees for the first year as well as their first month, last month, and security deposit for housing up to a price of $3,000 to help get them settled here in Princeton while looking for work.
Through our research we have discovered a serious lack of opportunities available for students to obtain grants, loans and traditional financial aid to attend non-credit art institutions. Though the level education a student will receive at this type of institution is exceptional, most lenders do not support the pursuit of non-credit programs.
There are many young artists graduating high school hoping to attend an art atelier or Academy focusing in classical realism who are saddened to learn that their dream cannot become reality. They have a specific goal, ambition and are ready to succeed but cannot handle the financial burden on their own.
Please consider donating to this fund to give hope to young artists struggling without support. Your kind donation to this fund allows us to give them the highest level of education possible in the field of contemporary realism.

Why now? Princeton Academy of Art has begun the process of recruitment across the United States. A startling number of students we have encountered are recent HS graduates unable to pay for their tuition through traditional channels. This to us was an immediate cause for concern.
No HS student with serious passion for arts and culture should be bound by rules and regulations set by the lending sector and government agencies. All students should be encouraged to pursue their passion whichever direction it may take them - credit giving or not. Having heard of the struggles students were facing first hand, now seemed like the perfect time for us to ask for help from our community.
Join us in creating opportunities and support systems for students pursuing non-traditional higher education in the arts! We are working tirelessly each day to expand the resources we can provide to our students, YOU can help by ensuring that these students are supported financially!
Why you should help: Students who are recipients of this scholarship are extremely dedicated but have faced countless challenges in their pursuit of education due to financial disadvantage.
By supporting this year’s Scholarship students, you are investing in the futures of deserving artists who will serve as role models in their communities.
Princeton Academy of Art is dedicated to the continued achievements of our students post-graduation and commits to guiding them into a career that is both fulfilling in terms of lifetime happiness and financial stability.
Help us to achieve our goal and support the futures of young aspiring artists. Rejoice in their creative, vibrant futures today.
