Arts for Life! annually awards $1,000 scholarships to 25 graduating high school seniors in Florida who demonstrate excellence in creative writing, dance, drama, music or visual art. Launched by former First Lady Columba Bush in 1999, the program has awarded scholarships to more than 575 gifted high school seniors. The application period is currently open until February.
The Arts for Life! Scholarship is for high school students who are graduating from a public, private, or virtual school or a home education program in Florida in the spring. A committee of judges for each of the five disciplines, comprised of respected experts, reviews and scores the students’ essays and work samples. Students with the top scores in each discipline are awarded a scholarship. Winning seniors will be notified in the Spring.
