Visual Art Scholarships

Our commitment to arts education is extended through an annual visual arts scholarship program for graduating seniors from area high schools planning to continue their education in the visual arts. For over 20 years, Hilliard Arts Council has been providing scholarships to deserving young artists.  Currently, a $1000 scholarship is available each year for each of the Hilliard High Schools. Applications can be submitted online beginning in January each year with a deadline of March 31. The scholarships are then  presented at each school’s annual award night.
