The Toledo Museum of Art is now accepting applications for the Palmer Scholarship, which funds art-related travel for northwest Ohio residents.

The Museum is inviting artists, photographers, students, and others pursuing an artistic endeavor away from home to apply for the award. While the scholarship funds airfare, meals, and hotel or housing, it does not provide for related tuition, class fees, or study materials. Up to $8,000 in scholarship funds will be given.

The application deadline for the annual art travel award is March 16, 2018. Appropriate project proposals include the advancement of creative skills, conducting research, or studying educational techniques. Previous scholarship recipients have used the scholarship to fly to New Zealand to study indigenous artifacts, travel to practice photography and document landscapes, and visit Haiti to photograph conditions one year after the 2010 earthquake.

Applicants must currently reside in northwest Ohio. The award recipient(s) must complete the travel within one year of notification. Awards will be announced in April. Details and an application form can be downloaded at

Scholarships for TMA art classes for children and adults are intended to provide art education to those who might not otherwise be able to participate and to encourage artistically gifted individuals.
