Scholarships - High School Seniors Apply Now!

In part, the EAA mission states "We are dedicated to furthering artistic understanding and encouraging artistic growth of its members and community at large and promoting interest through networking, outreach, community events, education, knowledge and skills in the arts." One way in which EAA furthers these goals is the annual award of scholarships to graduating seniors who plan to pursue their education in the arts.

Apply Now! Contact Elgin Arts Association for a Pearls Before Swine Scholarship application. The Pearls Before Swine Scholarship application deadline is March 31, 2016. The scholarship, sponsored by the Elgin Arts Association, is available for Elgin area graduating seniors who plan to continue studies in any of the arts (visual, music, theater, dance, creative writing, etc).
