Gage is proud to offer both full- and half-tuition scholarships for classes, workshops and lectures on a stand-by basis.

Stand-by Scholarships

Stand-by Scholarship applicants work with the Registrar to determine their course requests for each quarter and receive their final course assignments three business days before the commencement of the program.

The Gage Stand-by Scholarship Program is available to motivated students who demonstrate both financial need and the desire to receive an arts education.

Click HERE to view and complete the Stand-by Scholarship application. Stand-by Scholarships are no longer accepted on a rolling basis.

For more information email Ellyn Hill, Co-Registrar, or call 206.323.4243, x10

Tuition Scholarships

The Tuition Scholarships are merit and need-based awards given annually to exceptional and motivated adult artists to help them pursue their artistic practice further through Gage programs.

  1. 5 samples of your work
  2. Personal statement: Half a page -1 page, 12 point Times New Roman font, double spaced. This is a chance to explain your artistic background, your financial situation, and what you hope to pursue with this scholarship opportunity.
  3. One letter of recommendation from an art professional (less than 500 words)
  4. Proof of income through a Federal Income Tax-Return or a valid affidavit.

Studio Monitors

Studio Monitors are another alternative to receiving a discount on classes. Selected studio monitors receive a 70% discount off of the tuition of their designated class(es) in exchange for their helping out in the classroom and for volunteering at one of our events.

Anyone interested in becoming a studio monitor should fill out an application HERE. The application closes after the quarter has started, so if you would like to know if a class is still looking for a studio monitor, please inquire with Registrar Courtney Odell at
