Lake Region Arts Council’s Arts Mentorship Program provides scholarships to a limited number of students, currently in grades 9-11, that attend public, private or home schools and live in our nine-county region. The program offers students the opportunity for study with a professional in their chosen field during the summer months. Talents can include music, visual arts, creative writing, media arts, architecture, theater, costume design, dance and more. Each scholarship, valued at $600, is awarded based on student commitment and potential for artistic development—no formal training is required. 

Carefully vetted mentors are experts in their chosen fields. Through a vigorous and comprehensive outreach into our communities, LRAC makes every effort to ensure Arts Mentorship Program scholarships are accessible to all eligible students in Becker, Clay, Douglas, Grant, Otter Tail, Pope, Stevens, Traverse and Wilkin counties.
