Design Street Scholarships

We offer need-based scholarships and have application forms for Young Artists (preschool and grades K-12), and Adults. If your child qualifies for the State of Michigan free or reduced lunch program, even if you do not participate, they will qualify. Guidelines can be found at the bottom of this page. If you do not qualify for State free or reduced lunch program but have special circumstances that warrant financial assistance, please explain on your application.

Scholarships generally cover 50% of an art class or art camp fee.
Scholarship forms are available at the Design Street studio or in PDF form here:
