Scholarships

A youth art class in progress

The Worcester Art Museum offers scholarships to individuals who are passionate about art and are experiencing financial limitations so that they can participate in our studio class programs. We offer full scholarships for youth, teen, and adult classes, and this year we are introducing Woo Scholarships; a new 50% Scholarships category for youth attending Worcester Public Schools.

Apply online through the links below or over the phone by calling 508.793.4339 or 508.793.4333.

WAM Scholarships — 100% Tuition Coverage

The Museum continues to offer full scholarships to students who require financial support. These scholarships cover 100% of class tuition for students with limited finances. Applications for scholarships are reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis. Students may take up to two (2) courses per session on a WAM Scholarship. Students must re-submit an application form for each session (Fall, Winter, Summer); supporting documentation is good for a period of one year. Once your application is reviewed, a staff member will contact you.
