Scholarships at the Ann Arbor Art Center

At the A2AC we believe that art is for everyone and everyone, regardless of age, ability, or socioeconomic status, should have the opportunity to experience the transformational power of the visual arts.

Thanks to many generous individuals, the A2AC is happy to provide scholarship funds to those with financial need. Scholarships are awarded from the following funds:

  • Art for Everyone Scholarship Fund
  • Matthew J. Segal Scholarship Fund
  • Roseann Hebeler Brown Scholarship Fund

A2AC scholarships remove financial obstacles for individuals and families in need, providing a gateway to high-quality art experiences that cultivate a life of growth, discovery, and contribution.
