Summer Scholarships

About the Program

The Scholastic Awards Summer (SAS) Scholarship Program provides students who have been recognized by the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards an opportunity to attend summer art or writing programs on a full-tuition scholarship.

Students do not apply for specific summer programs; instead, they apply for a SAS Scholarship, and we work with our partners to place students into a program that will work best for them based on their availability, location, and interests.


Students in grades 7–11 who receive a Gold or Silver Key and complete a SAS Scholarship application are eligible for a SAS Scholarship. Individual programs may set additional criteria.

How to Submit

The application period opens when regional awards are announced in January. To apply, log into your account at You will find My SAS Scholarships Application on your student dashboard.

Application Checklist

All applications must contain:
1. Your Gold or Silver Key art or writing.
2. Up to five additional recent examples of your best art or writing.
3. Complete answers to all questions in the written part of the application, including your Profile and Student Questionnaire.
4. The Parent/Guardian Questionnaire must be completed by your parent or guardian.
