It may still be winter, but now is the perfect time to start thinking about summer! The Scholastic Awards have partnered with many organizations, colleges, and institutes to offer our students low-cost or free admission to some of the best summer art and writing programs across the country for teens. 

Applying for a summer program scholarship is easy! Students should log into their Scholastic Awards accounts and click on What is the SAS Scholarships program? to find out if they meet the criteria. Then, they will need to complete their application and submit it to the Scholastic Awards by March 10. Below is a list of the great art and writing programs available to our students.
