Toledo Museum of Art's Travel Scholarship

Students of art are encouraged to apply now for the Palmer Scholarship awarded by the Toledo Museum of Art. The application deadline for this art travel award is January 29, 2010. The Palmer Scholarship provides funding for travel for an individual(s) to pursue a course of study in an art-related field. The award recipient(s) will receive up to $8,000 toward the costs of travel—including airfare, hotel and meal expenses—either domestic or abroad, to enhance studies in an art-related field. Project examples include advancing creative skills, conducting research, and studying educational techniques. Applicants must reside in Northwest Ohio. The award recipient(s) must complete the travel within one year of notification. Awards will be announced in March 2010. Full details and the application form can be downloaded at www.toledomuseum.org/learn/classes. Questions can be directed to class registrar Rebecca Byers at rbyers@toledomuseum.org or (419) 255-8000, ext. 7363. The Palmer Scholarship is just one of many awarded by the Toledo Museum of Art. Scholarships for TMA art classes—for children and adults—are intended to provide art education to those who might not otherwise be able to participate, and to encourage artistically gifted individuals. See the Museum website for additional information.
