Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (ED&I) Scholarships

2022 NAEA National Convention | March 3-5, 2022

ED&I Commission 4:3

The ED&I Commission began this scholarship opportunity that is designed to increase equity, diversity, and inclusion in the field of visual art and design education and remove barriers to access for underserved and underrepresented individuals. This scholarship will support ED&I-focused visual arts educators, with a priority focus on first-time attendees of the NAEA National Convention and Preservice visual arts and design students.

Interested individuals will complete a brief survey including an “about me” essay that addresses their experience with equity, diversity, and inclusion in the field. Those selected will receive free 2022 National Convention registration and a free one-year NAEA national membership. Up to twenty scholarships will be awarded. These scholarships are designed to support visual arts and design educators on their path of continued professional learning, teaching, and leadership development. Those selected will engage with the ED&I Commission in the spring and fall of 2022 for continued sharing and connection.

The scholarship award will cover the registration fee for the 2022 NAEA National Convention and one year of membership to NAEA (not to be combined with state association membership).

Eligibility: Applicants must spend at least 51% of their professional work as a visual arts/design education professional and/or a Preservice student in the field of art and design education.

Applications for this scholarship will close on Monday, January 24, 2022 at 11:59pm ET
