CAEA Scholarship Opportunities
CAEA offers two types of scholarships. Student scholarships are available to students from middle school to pre-service. Professional Development scholarships are offered to members to help them attend CAEA conferences. Your donation to the CAEA scholarship funds is appreciated.
CAEA Student Artwork Rubric
In the absence of cross-committee norming, rubrics yield subjective results based on each judge’s unique interpretation of the rubric criteria.
It is important to understand that the CAEA Student Artwork Rubric will be used when judging all student scholarship artwork entries.
CAEA Student Photo Release Form
Each year, the CAEA website displays photos of student scholarship winners and their teachers next to the image of each winning artwork. To enable CAEA to do this, this form needs to be completed, signed, and sent to [email protected] by either the student scholarship winner or, if the student is a minor, the parents of student scholarship winners, along with a photo of the winner.
Idyllwild Summer Arts Program Scholarship for Elementary to High School Students
CAEA has joined with The Idyllwild Arts Foundation to provide an opportunity for one student (ages 10-17) from one of the four areas in California to experience this unique summer art program. Current CAEA members may nominate as many students as they wish. The Idyllwild Arts Foundation is generously covering 100% of the cost of residential tuition for up to two one-week programs or one two-week program for the chosen student. The student/family will need to provide the following:
