For over 30 years, Gage Academy of Art has centered its mission around educating, enriching, and transforming our community through the visual arts. The Gage Academy of Art Scholarship program supports Gage’s commitment to making arts education accessible and equitable to everyone.
Gage Academy of Art’s scholarships are made possible by the tremendous philanthropy of contributing donors. This year, Gage Academy of Art’s scholarship review panel awarded $25,500 to new and returning students of Gage’s Capitol Hill and Georgetown campuses. Thank you to all of our generous scholarship donors who have made it possible to provide financial assistance to a talented array of new and returning students.
Scholarship applicants were required to complete an application, provide samples of artwork, and complete an essay submission. A dedicated scholarship review panel of Artists and Arts Administrators (listed below) reviewed submissions and selected the recipients.

The Gage Academy of Art BIPOC Scholarship is designed to empower and support Black, Indigenous, and People of Color by providing partial funds to enroll in one of Gage Academy of Art’s renowned Atelier programs. This need-based scholarship was founded by Gage Academy of Art’s Atelier Instructors to provide ongoing art opportunities for BIPOC students who would not otherwise have access to Gage’s prestigious Atelier program. The funding for the 2021 BIPOC Scholarship provided by Atelier instructor Kimberly Trowbridge through the sale of her donated artwork for the 2021 Gala, and from Gage instructor and supporter Tiffany Dae. This scholarship covers partial tuition for any one of Gage Academy of Art’s seven Ateliers for the 2021-2022 academic year.
