College Scholarships

2016 College Scholarship Opportunity (open to high school graduating seniors)


Since 1982, Paint Creek Center for the Arts has been nurturing aspiring young artists through its college scholarship program.  We know the importance of a quality art education and our scholarships help students with the ever-rising cost of tuition. Open to graduating high school seniors who are planning to attend an accredited college majoring in a visual arts program.   $1000 scholarships will be available to students from Oakland, Macomb and Wayne Counties to apply for in the Fall of 2015 with a competitive review of digital images and support materials.  Students need not be enrolled in classes at PCCA to be eligible.

Five (5) scholarships were made possible in 2015 from the generosity of The Abrams Foundation.

One of the scholarships is made possible through donations to the Mary McCarthy Anderson Scholarship Fund.  This scholarship fund pays tribute to Mary who was an attorney, an accomplished artist, devoted member of the Sisters of the Brush and a longtime student at Paint Creek Center for the Arts.

Please watch our website for application details which will be available in the Fall of 2015.
