Allied Artists of Johnstown Legacy Scholarships:
Scholarships will be awarded at the discretion of the Juror. The eligibility requirements are: (1) the senior student must plan to continue a formal education in the field of art, as his/her primary major, immediately after graduation and must be able to do so financially, and (2) the senior student must present a portfolio for judging.
*Forms may be downloaded at the bottom of this page!*
Any high school senior student who plans to continue formal education by majoring in the field of art is invited to apply. Art is to be the primary major, not secondary. If student changes his/her major, the remaining portion of the scholarship will be void.
