Elizabeth Stark was a beloved mother and artist who was passionate about all forms of art and art history.
Unfortunately, arts programs frequently are underfunded or fully cut from schools. More than 80% of American schools have faced budget cuts since 2008, and the arts are often one of the first things to go. It’s critical that artistic students have the resources they need to pursue their passions.
This scholarship honors the life of Elizabeth Stark by supporting two female-identifying or non-binary students who are pursuing degrees in art or art history.
Any female student from Virginia who is currently pursuing or planning to pursue an art or art history degree may apply for this scholarship. Students attending art schools are also eligible to apply.
To apply, tell us how art has made an impact on your life and why you are pursuing art through higher education.

The application deadline is Feb 16, 2022. Winners will be announced on Mar 15, 2022.
The scholarship award is $2,500 per winner.
The winner will be publicly announced on Mar 15, 2022. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution or future academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
