Louisville Artisans Guild Art Scholarship

The Louisville Artisans Guild is Kentucky’s oldest guild dedicated to pursuing excellence in arts and crafts. It was founded in 1956 as the Louisville Craftsmen Guild.

We are pleased to offer this scholarship to help high school seniors pursuing a non-performing visual art-related major within their first year of college. The Scholarship was initiated in 1995 as a $300 award and has grown to a one-time award of $2,000.
