Lilian Schenck Foundation NJ Art Educator Scholarship
Two full-tuition scholarships for NJ Art Educators. Materials, lodging, meals and a travel stipend are also covered.
Through the generosity of the Lillian Schenck Foundation, Peters Valley is excited to offer full workshop scholarships to two art educators. These educators must teach at an elementary, middle or high school in the state of New Jersey. The scholarship will cover the tuition, materials fee, shared lodging, meals and travel reimbursement up to $100 for an immersive 5-day workshop of their choice during the summer workshop season. These scholarships are offered in an effort to encourage art teachers to learn new skills or enhance existing ones.
Scholarship recipients will be chosen by a panel of Peters Valley staff. The panel will review the applications and select those that reflect the strongest need and desire to further develop their skills and understanding of craft media. The panel will take into consideration the applicant's experience and the contents of the letter of intent. While we feel it is important that the applicant show active involvement in their field outside the classroom, we also feel that a strong desire to enhance their school program and learn by doing is equally important. It is our hope that by taking a workshop at Peters Valley the recipients will be inspired to grow creatively in their personal work and pass information along to their students.
