PLAG Scholarships

Preserving the Future of Artists

Each year graduating seniors in District 38’s Lewis Palmer and Palmer Ridge High Schools who have demonstrated a serious commitment to art and intend to continue art studies as they prepare for a profession in the visual arts have an opportunity to apply for a PLAG Art Scholarship. Since then, over $88,000 in donations from members, sponsors and patrons have benefited these students and have further embraced the community our founding members challenged themselves to create over sixty years ago.

Eligibility Requirements:

Presentation of art work for jury:

Application: 1) Photo of Artist; 2) Complete application [2nd page]

Art work will be judged on imagination, skill, originality and growth/ progression. The contents of the sketchbook may come from the student’s imagination or life experience, and reflects the development of the artist—areas of exploration, focus, refinement, study, and processes–over time.

The jury will select up to 3 pieces of each award recipient’s art work to be on exhibit at the Palmer Lake Art Group‘s June Show, where the Opening Reception will honor the year’s Scholarship Award Recipients. Family and friends are invited and encouraged to attend as well. Come and meet the PLAG artists committed to making the student scholarships possible for young artists year after year. The student’s work will remain on exhibit in the annual Color Splash Art Show at the Tri Lakes Center for the Arts for the month of June.

The Award Jury is composed of up to four (4) judges from the Palmer Lake Art Group. The jury may divide the award however they wish, among two or more entrants; or make no award at all. This scholarship is to be used within the next 12 months. Payment is made directly to the college, upon proof of enrollment in an art-related field.
