Portside Arts Center awards summer camp scholarships to eligible students through an application process. Scholarships are awarded to students based on need and artistic interest. Portside Arts Center's board of directors reviews each application in confidence and makes awards based on the information you provide in this application.
Portside Arts Center tries to make every effort to award scholarships when circumstances require it. Every year Portside's board and staff dedicate their time to raise funds for student scholarships. Most of our scholarship funds are raised through Portside's Annual Lehigh Ave Arts Fest which is held in May. Due to the growing need for requests, Portside awards selected students with partial scholarships.
We encourage all families to apply and past scholarship recipients are welcomed to apply again. Portside Arts Center does not and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of its activities or operations.
