Over $12,000 In Scholarships available to Ojai Valley Art Students

Deadline for application is: Friday, April 24, 2020

The Ojai Studio Artists organization is awarding over $12,000 for art scholarships this year to qualified juniors/seniors in high school and college students who are residents of the Ojai Valley and are pursuing a career in the visual arts.  Applicants are eligible to receive one scholarship award per year with a maximum of four scholarships total.

This is a wonderful opportunity for art students to receive financial aid, to augment their resumes and to connect with OSA’s vibrant community of artists.  Professional artists from OSA will jury the digital entries, awarding scholarships based on merit. Selected works of the recipients will be exhibited at the historic Ojai City Hall May 18-June 19, 2020. A formal presentation of awards and opening reception will take place at Ojai City Hall on Thursday, May 21 from 5:30-6:30.

Kamile Fargher, a graduate of Nordhoff High School, says of her award experience: Attending Otis college of Art and Design has been amazing and I am so excited for my future in the field of communication arts. I appreciate the scholarships dearly and attending the college of my dreams as well as pursing my passion wouldn’t be possible without the support from the Ojai Studio Artists. I am so extremely grateful and hope to share my gifts as an artist with the world and more importantly, Ojai.

Since its inception, the Ojai Studio Artists (OSA), a 501 (c) (3) California non-profit organization, has raised over $254,000 for educational support. A vital part of OSA’s community mission, the scholarships are financed by donations and funds raised during special events and the Annual OSA Studio Tour.  This year’s OSA Tour takes place on October 10-12. Application forms and submission requirements are posted at www.ojaistudioartists.org.  Applications must be received by 5:00PM, Friday, April 24, 2020.
