To provide a modest stipend to support students engaged in furthering their studies.  This is especially geared toward students pursuing college and/or graduate studies in any course of study.  Stipends are also provided for artists pursuing an art project independently (not as part of a college program).


Any age students, but geared toward college students or beyond.
