Big HeART Scholarship Program

Don’t let finances hold you back! We’ve revamped our scholarship program to offer promising students a more in-depth experience through longer-term financial assistance.

The Art Students League of Denver is committed to making our art experiences accessible to all members of our community. Toward this end, ASLD raises scholarship funds through development efforts with foundations, corporations and individuals, to ensure our arts education is accessible to all segments of the community, including lower-income patrons.

These funds are administered by a Scholarship Committee, which meets to review applications and award scholarships ranging from partial to full registration fees to students of all ages.

Scholarship Awards

Scholarships are awarded to individuals who demonstrate an interest in the arts, dedication to learning, and financial need. Selections are made through review of applications and submitted letters of recommendation. Scholarships will be awarded for full or partial tuition based on need and availability of funds. Students receiving awards will be given a certificate and should register for their selected course(s) at ASLD’s main office as soon as possible to have access to the broadest range of classes/workshops as some have limited availability. Maximum award is $1750 for tuition (registration and related materials fees) and a $250 gift card for supplies at Meininger Art Supply. When registering for classes, scholarship recipients will be required to pay $10 per class from funds other than scholarship award.

Application Guidelines (Adult)

The application deadline for Spring, 2015 scholarships has passed. 

Scholarships for Youth and Teens

These funds are on a first-come, first serve basis until funds are exhausted. Scholarships range from partial to full registration fees based on income and availability of funds for youths 6-17 years of age. Scholarships are awarded to families who demonstrate an interest in the arts, dedication to learning, and financial need. Scholarships will be awarded for full or partial tuition based on need and availability of funds.

  • ASLD will award scholarships, when available, for the following programs:
  • Saturday morning or afternoon visual art courses for youths and teens
  • Any other ASLD after-school courses for youth and teens
  • Friday evening Teen Studio Night at ASLD
Each scholarship may include the following:
  • Two month of visual arts educaton and the use of ASLD art supplies for any Youth or Teen course (recepients must pay a $10 enrollment fee)
  • ASLD Membership for one year
  • Teen Studio Night scholarship (recepients must pay $5 per class date towards the full price of $15 per class date)

This is a rolling application. Please contact us for more information.
