PEARLIE ROBERSON ANNUAL SCHOLARSHIP AWARD
ABOUT THE PEARLIE ROBERSON AWARD: Pearlie Roberson was an African American artist and art therapy client. This scholarship award was created in 2000. The award honors Ms. Roberson’s request to “remember me” and supports efforts to “explore, express, connect…” to enhance the multicultural aspects of the therapeutic experience.
CRITERIA: The award provides financial support for a project, undertaken by a student or professional member of the American Art Therapy Association, which targets multicultural aspects and capacities of art therapy. The award is based on the merit of the project proposal, not financial need. It is specifically designed to advance the Association’s teaching and research mission.
DEADLINE: June 1, 2018. The Pearlie Roberson Scholarship Award is presented during the formal awards ceremony which takes place each year at the Annual Conference. Applicants will be notified in advance about the decision of their application.
SCHOLARSHIP AWARD: Up to $1,000.00. This amount may be split between or among recipients in any given year.
