In an effort to expose more youth to art as a creative outlet, The West Hartford Art League, through a donation from The Barbara Morley Family Foundation, offers scholarships to under-served youth from the greater Hartford region..

To apply for a scholarship, please fill out the form below, and send it with a copy of your most recent family household tax return to: The West Hartford Art League 37 Buena Vista Road, West Hartford, CT 06107

Scholarships will be granted to youth between the ages of 5 – 18 based on need and income documentation. The scholarship will cover a portion of class and materials cost.

Individuals may apply for up to two scholarships per academic year (fall, winter spring, summer), however in an effort to reach as many students as possible, an applicant may not apply for two scholarships during the same session.

Non-members may apply, however if a non-member is awarded a scholarship and then wishes to apply for a subsequent scholarship, the applicant must first become a WHAL member.

A completed application for a scholarship must be submitted to the WHAL office at least two weeks before the first class meeting.
