CMAB Awards Sixteen Student Arts Scholarships


At the April 11, 2019 meeting, The Central Minnesota Arts Board (CMAB) awarded Arts Scholarships to sixteen students totaling $24,000. The Student Arts Scholarship Program is designed to support individuals entering or enrolled in an accredited institution and who are pursuing undergraduate degrees in the arts. Applicants are eligible to receive up to four Student Arts Scholarships in a lifetime.
