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.

The awards have ranged anywhere from $100-$1,000 and are open to any artists interested in pursuing their practice at Gage. To apply, you will need:

  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.

Applicants will be notified of their status after August 29.


For further questions, please email Registrar Salena Hill

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.

Applications are due each year on May 31st and are applicable for one year’s worth of classes/workshops/lectures (one per quarter). Applications for the 2018/2019 academic year will be accepted starting April 2018.

For more information email Jessica Lah, Co-Registrar, or call 206.323.4243, x10


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 Salena Hill at
