NEA Renna Arts Scholarships: John Anthony Renna bequeathed his estate to the National Endowment for the Arts for the purpose of supporting two- or four-year scholarships for art students of limited financial resources. To fulfill the terms of this bequest, the Arts Endowment has created the National Endowment for the Arts John Renna Art Scholarships initiative to award grants to independent schools and colleges of art, enabling them to provide such support. Independent schools and colleges of art: Specialize in art and design. Offer B.F.A. and M.F.A. degrees. Are accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art & Design. May provide free or subsidized tuition for students of limited financial resources. Are not departments of larger colleges or universities. Each grantee school will: Prepare and disseminate NEA John Renna Art Scholarships application guidelines and forms to solicit information and material sufficient to judge each applicant's artistic ability and limited financial resources. This includes distributing the school's financial aid requirements. Conduct an open application process to solicit a broad range of students through a variety of networks. Select recipients and provide a scholarship to each. Submit reports to the Arts Endowment on the number of scholarships awarded, and the names and hometowns of the recipients. Monitor recipients and evaluate their participation. Recipients of the scholarships must: Be citizens or permanent residents of the United States. Have limited financial resources.
