CMAB Awards Eleven Student Arts Scholarships

At the April 13, 2017 meeting, The Central Minnesota Arts Board (CMAB) awarded Arts Scholarships to eleven students totaling $16,500. The Student Arts Scholarship Program is designed to support individuals entering or enrolled in an accredited institution and who are pursuing undergraduate degrees in the arts. Applicants are eligible to receive up to four Student Arts Scholarships in a lifetime.

A panel of volunteer artists, arts professionals and educators evaluate each applicant according to established criteria. The CMAB directors received the recommendation from the panel and awarded funding to applicants that scored the highest.
