Idyllwild Arts Native American Scholarships

Idyllwild Arts has announced that they have recently begun registration for their 64th Annual Summer Program which takes place June 16 through August 10 in Idyllwild, California.

The Idyllwild Arts Summer Program offers workshops for adults and youth in Native American arts and cultures, ceramics, painting, photography, creative writing, filmmaking, dance, theater, and music, on their beautiful campus in the San Jacinto Mountains of Southern California. Exhibits, lectures, demonstrations and performances complement these programs throughout the summer. Workshops run from one to four weeks long.

They also have scholarships available specifically for Native American youth to attend the program. In addition, they have funds available for teachers and community leaders in Native communities. Detailed information and application procedures are below.

The Native American Youth Scholarship is designed for students ages 9 – 18, with current tribal affiliation, and financial need. The expenses covered include tuition, lab fee, registration fee, dorm housing, and all meals in the campus dining hall.

The Native American Teacher/Community Leader Scholarship is designed for adults 18 and over, with current tribal affiliation. The purpose of this scholarship fund is to bring teachers and community leaders to workshops at Idyllwild Arts to benefit both the scholarship recipients themselves as well as those in their schools and/or tribal communities when they return home. Applicants with financial need are given priority. The expenses covered by the scholarship include tuition, lab fee, registration fee, dorm housing, and all meals in the campus dining hall.

Individuals should apply as soon as possible to ensure that there is space in the workshops they select. Applications will be accepted beginning February 1, 2013. Click here to access the Summer 2013 workshop schedule, and you can click here to download registration form.
