August 2007, Austin, Texas
The Texas Commission on the Arts (TCA) is now accepting applications for the 2008 class of the Young Masters scholarship program. The scholarships will help promising young school-aged students in Texas to excel in the arts.
The Young Masters Program will provide exemplary arts students in grades 8-12 with the financial help they need to pursue advanced study in the areas of visual arts, literature, music, theatre, dance and media arts.
Only the most talented young artists will receive the title of Young Master and will be granted $2,500 scholarships per year to further their studies in their chosen arts disciplines. All proposed artistic training programs should be completed during the period of May 1, 2008 through August 31, 2008. Students are eligible to receive the scholarship for up to three years, but they must reapply annually. Young Masters scholarships are not available for collegiate study.
