Rising Young Artist Scholarship Program Funders
Albert & Clare Appel General Scholarship Fund
Named for Appel Farm’s Founders, this fund is designed to help us fulfill our mission to provide people of all ages, cultures and economic backgrounds with a supportive, cooperative environment in which to explore the fine and performing arts. Appel Farm believes that the arts are an exciting and essential part of the learning process and that artistic talent is innate and waiting to be developed in every person.
This general scholarship fund offers awards from 5% up to 100% of tuition, does not have geographic limitations, and can be applied to ANY session length. Money for these awards are directly contributed through individual giving.
