Students who have won an award in the past are eligible to reapply.

Applications, which are due by March 31, may be submitted via email to Scholarship Committee,, or mailed or delivered to Sandpiper Art Gallery and Gifts, P.O. Box 1163, 306 Main St., Polson, MT 59860.

The non-profit gallery began over 50 years ago in Polson with a mission to encourage and promote appreciation and participation in the arts, and emphasizes making art available to people and promoting art as a career.
