How to Apply for Scholarships

  •    John Paul Miller Scholarship in the Visual Arts

    The John Paul Miller Scholarship is a tuition scholarship that is awarded to a forth year student at the Cleveland Institute of Art.

    The student is chosen by the scholarship committee at the Cleveland Institute of Art.


    John Paul Miller

    The first Cleveland Arts Prize to be awarded in the visual arts was given to a man who had set out to be a painter, but instead made an international reputation in a very different art form: gold jewelry. In 1961, the same year John Paul Miller was awarded the arts prize, examples of his work were included in an international exhibition at London's Goldsmiths Hall.


  •   The Klaus Roy Scholarship

    The Klaus Roy Scholarship is given to a student in grades ten through twelve at The Cleveland School of the Arts to help them purchase an instrument.


    Klaus Roy

    As the beloved author for more than thirty years of the Cleveland Orchestra’s concert program notes and broadcast interviews with many world famous composers and performers, Klaus Roy became known as an authority on musical greatness. As the creator of sparkling (and often witty) musical compositions, he revealed his own considerable musical gifts. And as a co-founder and guiding force of the Cleveland Arts Prize for more than four decades, he played an active role in the identification and nurturing of musical excellence.


    The Klaus Roy Scholarship in Music continues that legacy by recognizing young musicians of exceptional promise.


  •   The Cleveland Arts Prize Scholarship in Literature

  •   Kathryn Karipides Scholarship in Modern Dance

    This scholarship provides funds for a graduate dance student at Case Western Reserve University to attend a summer study dance program that will enhance his/her craft and skill.



    Kathryn Karipides

    The Kathryn Karipides Scholarship, open to Case Western Reserve University students, was designed to assist students between undergraduate and graduate school with opportunities for summer dance study.


    Ms. Karipides spent three summers at Connecticut College, studying intensively with some of the greatest modern dance artists of the time: Martha Graham, Merce Cunningham, Lucas Hoving, Jose Limon, and Louis Horst, and remembers those summers as "transformative" times in her artistic development. It was her wish to help aspiring dancers in this way.
