Community Service Scholarship and Fellowship Opportunities

    The Community Service Fellowship 

    The Fellowship program is designed to encourage and reward students who have concerns for the surrounding community of Sarasota and are interested in using their talent and training along with their creativity to make a difference. The Fellows will be engaged in programs that will develop valuable skills for leadership roles in art and design and provide educational experiences while also benefiting others in need.

    In the fall and spring, students can submit individual proposals for projects that will enhance their educational training and benefit the local community to be completed by during the academic year.  The award amounts vary based on the involvement required by the proposal and the duration of the project.
