Scholarship Program

Due to the generosity of the E. L. Cord Foundation, several scholarships are available each year for a variety of students who desire to take classes offered at the E. L. Cord Museum School.

Scholarship Criteria

Scholarships are based upon essay response and financial need. Applications must be received at least ten (10) business days before the first day of the class you are interested in taking. Scholarships are limited and can only be applied toward fees for ONE class. Scholarships do not cover class supplies, materials, or model fees; these fees are the student‘s responsibility. Students can apply for two scholarships in the same session and may be awarded up to three scholarships per year.
