No one is turned away from the EAC due to financial need.

About Financial Aid

Financial aid, scholarships, and payment plans are available each term for any of our EAC classes based on financial need. Recent and prior recipients will be considered for approval, if funds are available. Priority is given to first-time applicants. Complete a financial aid application, or pick one up from the front desk. Please submit completed application and attendant documents with your registration. We urge you to complete your Financial Aid documents two weeks prior to the start of the class.. For more information, please call us at 847-475-5300.

Wieghardt/Kawamura Scholarship

The Evanston Art Center is honored to receive a very generous bequest from Sueko Kawamura. This scholarship will fund eight full scholarships a year for twenty-five years for students who cannot afford the tuition, based on their financial situation. Along with the scholarships, we proudly name our second floor gallery “The Sueko Kawamura Gallery”. Twenty artists will have the opportunity to exhibit their work in this gallery on an annual basis.
