Scholarships and Grants

Scholarships are currently awarded at 7 Delaware County High Schools to a graduating senior who has been determined by the teaching staff to be the most involved in the school's art's programs.  Grants are awarded on a rolling basis to art based projects that benefit the community.

To Apply For A Grant:

It is our goal to fund art related projects in and outside of schools in Delaware County.  The projects can be large or small. They can be requests for materials, visiting artists, field trips, or studio visits.  ANY classroom teacher or artist is eligible.  Do you have a great idea for teaching science, math, history, or literacy through art?  Do you have an art project that benefits Delaware County and it’s residents? Art is all about creativity.  Use your imagination! There's no limit to possible ideas.

It is our intent to keep the process simple.  Write a brief proposal describing the project or program, including a detailed cost and how the students will benefit.  All grants are given on a rolling basis.  Submissions should be made to Mary MacNaught at info@michellesfund.org.

In return, we request visual documentation of funded projects to display at our annual fundraiser in August.
