With an ASAP Award, Dylan Price learned to see things differently at MICA Summer Precollege.

How do you see yourself spending this summer? Last year, thanks to ASAP…

Dylan Prince soared from San Antonio to Baltimore to play with photography at MICA….

Grace Infante traveled from Miami to Michigan to study the figure at Cranbrook Summer Art Academy…

Noble Jones painted streetscapes at Boston’s Massachusetts College of Art & Design….

Eva Johnson penned poetry at Juniper Institute for Young Writers in Amherst…

Brandonlee Cruz left Hartford for rural Ohio, and wrote “I Tried to Skype with God” at Kenyon Young Writer’s Workshop…

The ASAP (Alliance Summer Arts Program) Awards welcomes applications from now until March 9—and space is limited so we encourage you to apply ASAP!

To find out if you qualify, login to your account and click on “What is ASAP?” Last summer, 46 students from 18 different states attended 25 art and writing intensives. This summer, from Maine to Iowa, and New York City to Iowa City, talented 13- to 17-year-olds will delve into Darkroom Photography, explore Architecture, try their hands at Playwriting or learn to seriously play—with clay among many other choices.

Students who apply for ASAP Awards this year will complete in-depth applications and offer portfolios that include  not just their Gold Key-winning work and proof of financial need, but a selection of other work of which they are proud. Here in New York, we will evaluate applications and determine the best of the best. Then we reach out to our ASAP partner programs and this select group earn full scholarships to attend an array of top local and residential arts programs, camps, and precollege programs.
