Up to $7,000 available for students pursuing arts; deadline to apply April 15

The Juneau Community Foundation (JCF) and the Brady Family of Skagway announced the Margaret Frans Brady Fund (MFBF) will make up to $7,000 in scholarship funding available in 2023 for qualifying area students pursuing artistic excellence. All application materials must be received by April 15. Application forms are available on the Juneau Community Foundation website. 

The MFBF was established in 2012 at the JCF to support arts and education projects and programs in Skagway and northern Southeast Alaska. A separate MFB Scholarship Fund was established a year later to assist students and artists in this area with scholarships to help them improve creative abilities. Since 2013, more than $70,000 has been awarded to 75 area students.

Scholarships are considered for all students pursuing creative arts including writing, music, visual and performance arts. These scholarships include grants to help artists attend arts camps, schools, colleges, symposiums, or conferences.

The scholarship committee will make recommendations and announce this year’s scholarships by early May. Scholarships will be sent to the tax-exempt non-profit or educational institution that awardees will be attending.
