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.

Adult Scholarship Awards

Scholarships are awarded to individuals who demonstrate an interest in the arts, a 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 should register for their selection(s) at ASLD’s main office as early as possible to have access to the broadest range of classes/workshops as some have limited availability.

Maximum award is $1,250 for tuition. When registering for classes, scholarship recipients will be required to pay $10 per class from funds other than scholarship award.
Scholarship funds may be applied toward any choice of on-going classes and/or workshops.

In honor of Ken Valastro, this year we have special funds for the Ken Valastro Scholarship, to support students interested in pursuing courses in painting or drawing.

We currently do not have adult scholarships available.  Please check back for updates about scholarships for our Summer session 2017!
