Each year, 10% of students enrolled in art classes are recipients of a Nelson-Atkins scholarship. By providing financial assistance to qualified students, the Scholarship Program ensures that all children can experience the unique classes in the Ford Learning Center.
Scholarships are awarded to students based on financial need and a desire to participate. To be considered for a scholarship students must be recommended by a sponsor.
