Encouraging the next generation of artists, the Marco Island Foundation for the Arts (MIFA) awards student scholarships each spring.
MIFA scholarships up to $1,000 are available to local students who major in an area of the arts. Both graduating high school seniors and college students living on Marco Island, Goodland or the Isles of Capri, are eligible to apply.
Scholarships are not limited to painters and sculptors. Students who study any of the vast and varied aspect of the arts – such as visual art, music, dance or the performing arts- are encouraged to apply.
Interested students must complete the scholarship application and return it to MIFA by April 30. Applicants will be interviewed in early May.
If you know a student who is studying literary, visual art or performing arts beyond high school, please make them aware of this wonderful opportunity. Visit the MIFA website at www.marcoarts.org for more information on how to apply for this scholarship.
