Scholarship Application Process and Eligibility
As part of the Leslie Powell Foundation’s mission to promote the arts within the Lawton community, scholarships are regularly rewarded to students who are in their Senior year of an Art Program at Cameron University. Applicants are hand-picked by Cameron’s Art Department Faculty and encouraged to apply for this exclusive honor.
In addition to the scholarship, which pays a portion of the student’s tuition during the Fall and Spring Semesters, the student is also enrolled in an internship with the Leslie Powell Foundation Gallery. This internship is a class worth credit at Cameron and is also paid for by the Foundation. During the student’s internship, he or she will work with the Director of the Gallery and learn what goes into running a non-profit art gallery.
Applications are accepted in April of each year. Instructions and the application can be found here.
