TAEA Memorial Scholarship

Do you have a student or know a pre-service college student who is pursuing studies in art education? We may have a scholarship for them! Read below to find out more about the Texas Art Education Association (TAEA) Scholarship Program administered and promoted by the Texas Art Education Foundation. All scholarship applications are due June 1 and are only accepted online. 

The Texas Art Education Association (TAEA) has established a Memorial Scholarship Fund. It awarded its first scholarship of $500 in May 2003. For those seeking this scholarship, priority will be given to a high school senior who intends to enroll in an art teacher certification degree program and is sponsored by a TAEA member. Any undergraduate university or college art education student who is a member of TAEA may apply. Active members of TAEA who are or plan to enroll in a graduate program may also apply.
