AMA Scholarships are intended to provide an understanding and appreciation of the arts to a wide demographic range who might not otherwise be financially able to attend Museum classes, and to recognize and encourage artistically gifted students. Scholarships, awarded based on financial need, cover 100% of the tuition fee for most classes. Each year, the Albany Museum of Art offers one scholarship per class. Students are chosen based upon their interest in art, how much they would benefit from the program, and the financial needs of the family of students enrolled in art classes. By providing financial assistance to qualified students, the Scholarship Program ensures that all children can experience the unique classes in the Albany Museum of Art.
