The Visual Arts Guild is pleased to be able to support our students and teachers each year through scholarships, grants, and funding for classroom supplies.


Students may request grant money for outside enrichment activities, such as, summer programs, figure drawing class or specific art supplies for projects related to their areas of concentration. A grant application is required, and is approved by the Department Head and the Guild Board (up to $200 per student).

VA Guild Scholarships

The Visual Arts Guild at Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts offers five $1,500 scholarships.

Recipients will receive the financial award and a certificate, confirming the scholarship, at the Senior Awards Ceremony.
