Palos Fine Arts Scholarships 2015

 

Palos Fine Arts was founded in 1984 to stimulate, promote and present the arts in the Palos area. By recognizing the importance of the arts in everyone’s life, it was natural to establish a scholarship program. Palos Fine Arts has been awarding scholarships since 1991. What better way to stimulate the arts than to support young artists or educators as they pursue knowledge in their chosen art form.
