Ilene Sperling Memorial Scholarship

ATI staff and supporters are honored to officially open the first annual Ilene Sperling Memorial Scholarship application process. This year, we are able to give away $2000 in total funding, to up to 10 applicants. 

Each Ilene Sperling Scholarship prize will average between $100-$500, and are intended to assist with such things as: art supplies, recording studio time, exhibits, performances, project related expenses, etc. We are committed to honoring Ilene and the seeds she planted by offering assistance to individuals seeking personal and/or community growth through the arts and healing. Scholarships are awarded once a year in late Fall. 

We advocate for and honor all expressive arts forms (literary, music, performing, and visual) in healing. The ATI scholarship committee is looking for passion, creativity, self-expression, exploration, and/or a commitment to social justice and community-building in your art.

Scholarship applications are due by 5PM, November 1st, 2018 and award notifications will be acknowledged by December 15th, 2018. Download the application through clicking the button at the top of the page. Please email all questions and application materials to
