The Frederick R. Layton Art Scholarship is a scholarship available to incoming and current Mount Mary students who declare a major in an arts and design academic area. Multiple scholarships of up to $3,000 each are awarded every year.
The scholarship is named for Frederick R. Layton, who created the first art gallery in Milwaukee in 1880. (The art collection is now housed in the Milwaukee Art Museum.) The Layton School of Arts was an outgrowth of his gallery and continued until it was closed in 1974. The Layton Board of Trustees established a foundation to continue Layton's philanthropy - an endowment for scholarships that aids artistically and academically talented students.
