The Alliance for Young Artists & Writers partners with art institutes, colleges and universities to earmark scholarships for college-bound Scholastic Contest Award recipients. (Applicants can apply to 29 different categories of art and writing for the chance to earn scholarships and have their works exhibited or published. Writing and art awards have different deadlines.)
To participate in the Awards, you must be a student in grades 7–12, age 13 years or older, and (a) residing in the United States, U.S. territories, or Canada, or (b) enrolled in an accredited American School in the rest of the world. A submission fee ($7 per individual submission and $25 per portfolio submission) is required but can be waived via an online waiver fee form, if it is a barrier to applying.
Three different writing scholarships opportunities exist:
The Alliance for Young Artists & Writers awards several direct scholarships annually to top Awards recipients. They also partner with art institutes, colleges, and universities who earmark scholarships for college-bound Scholastic Awards recipients.
The Scholastic Awards Summer Scholarship program provides opportunities for talented students with financial need to attend creative, pre-college programs all over the country during the summer.
Additionally, each year five students who have been recognized through the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards are selected for one year of service as literary ambassadors through the National Student Poets Program.
